    Imagine being in Haiti - what would you do without a home, without food or water- what would you do without a family.   Now imagine how you can help.

    This Thursday support the Salvation Army and give what you can at an all-day fundraiser in Downtown L.A.  Join NBC4, Clear ChannelLos Angeles and the City of L.A. from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. at L.A. City Hall on Main Street between First and Temple.

    Salvation Army volunteers and their red kettles will be out in force to collect whatever you can spare.  Consider giving up your lunch money for the day or money you would spend on a movie this weekend.   Every little bit helps.

    The Salvation Army currently has 700 people on the ground in Haiti responding to the pressing needs of earthquake victims.  They are proving food, water, emergency supplies, medical care and many other services.   One-hundred percent of what you give will go directly to their relief efforts in Haiti.

    L.A. Councilmembers Jan Perry and Bernard Parks are helping spearhead this effort.  They've made it easy for you to drop of money.  You can drive up to a donation drop-off point on Main street between City Hall and City Hall East in Downtown L.A.  And, if you work Downtown - walk by and donate.  There will be red kettles on the sidewalk waiting for your donation.

    Now, if you can't make it downtown - not to worry.  You can donate online at: www.salvationarmy.org, you can TEXT the word HAITI to 52000 and donate $10 to the Salvation Army's or you can call 800-SAL-ARMY and give.  Remember to designate your gift to Haiti.

    NBC4 and Clear Channel Los Angeles including Hot 92.3, AM 570, 102.7 KIIS FM and 98.7 FM are proud to be media sponsors of this all-day event.   The stations will broadcast live throughout the day from the fundraising effort.
