I'm going to donate a Costco size bottle of Childrens Motrin and Tylonel tablets. I will also pick up cans of formula from Costco as well since you mentioned this.. Great idea!

At my place of work, there's a Team of nurses, doctors, and specialists going to Haiti to help in a few days.. They are asking for us to donate anything.. I can just imagine all the donations they are getting, since my work has sooo many employees..

I'd gladly donate actual items like bottled water and med supplies but seeing as I have no idea where to take those items does can my monetary donation count as several items?

I haven't found anyone in my area taking donations. I did make a donation to the Red Cross though and I also just donated to Doctor's Without Borders.

You can donate to ANY red cross and they will get the items to Haiti. Also several hospitals are accepting donations. Check your local news websites for lists of where to donate.

Yes, Money counts!!
