Addendum to "The Haiti Tragedy: Why Is There Digital Silence?"

As Starbucks has announced:

• The Starbucks Foundation is contributing $1M to the Haitian relief efforts.

• Additionally, we're mobilizing to leverage the footprint of more than 7,500 participating stores in the U.S. and Canada as a destination for individuals to make donations to contribute to the Haitian relief efforts. Customers at these stores can now make monetary donations at store registers, with no purchase necessary, to benefit the American and Canadian Red Cross organizations.
