We Are The World 25th Anniversary

For those who missed it, the opening ceremonies of the 2010 Winter Olympics on NBC featured a new video for the 25th anniversary of the Michael Jackson song "We Are the World." The video is available for free online through YouTube, and you can buy the song through iTunes, with proceeds going to charities. The first charity is, of course, Haitian relief efforts ... and as I've discussed before, Haiti still needs a lot more aid. If you like the song, this is a great way to give a little bit extra while getting something nice for yourself, as well.


Overall, though, I wouldn't use this as my primary charity to give to Haiti. There are a lot of other great organizations in place to offer Haitian relief. You can use Charity Navigator to view the ratings on these organizations, so that you can make a better decision on your own giving.
