One Simple Thing...Help Haiti

It's been one month since an earthquake devastated Haiti.

Today I am reflecting on what I have done over the last month and how my life would be utterly different if I has been in Haiti on 12 JAN 2010.

There's much to be done to hep out in Haiti, but here's one simple thing you can do today to make a difference.

- Download "Everybody Hurts (Helping Haiti)" from iTunes.
This track was written and originally performed by one of my favorite bands, REM, who graciously waived the royalty fees for this remake produced by Simon Cowell. It's a great song on it's own, but with the proceeds going to relief for Haiti adding this to a playlist is a no-brainer. Artists include:Robbie Williams, Gary Barlow and Mark Owen as well as X Factor stars Cheryl Cole, JLS, Leona Lewis, Joe McElderry and Alexandra Burke. Susan Boyle from Britain’s Got Talent, Rod Stewart, Kylie Minogue, Mariah Carey Westlife, Mika, Michael Buble, Miley Cyrus, James Blunt, Jon Bon Jovi, James Morrison, Westlife’s Shane Filan and Mark Feehily.

- Download "We are the World 25 for Haiti- Single" from iTunes.
This is the song you know and love from the 80s remixed and recorded by 80 artists for the 25th anniversary of the first We Are the World effort.

Now you have 2 new tracks on your playlist to enjoy. Link to this post and encourage others to help out with the relief effort.

And don't forget to drop me a comment and let me know what you think of the tracks.
