Helping out in Haiti, architect style

There are many good charities and organizations helping out in the chaos and pain that is Haiti right now, such as the Red Cross and Doctors Without Borders. I'd also like to mention Architecture For Humanity as a cause worth supporting during this and any time. Generally, AFH provides services to developing countries and communities to help them get the building and infrastructure they need to improve their citizens' lives. Right now, AFH is working towards the reconstruction and shelter effort in Haiti, since as many as 2-3 million people are living out in the elements. I know times are tight for everyone, but remember that every little bit helps your neighbors. And by neighbors, I mean fellow humans schlepping this pebble.
