Americans have opened their wallets wide to help earthquake-ravaged Haiti. 

The Indiana University Center on Philanthropy says pledges and donations to U.S. nonprofits have soared to more than 500-million dollars since the nation was shaken by the quake two weeks ago.  “The Washington Times” reports the half-billion dollars in donations for Haitian relief surpasses the total given by Americans to victims of the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami. 

Haiti’s close proximity to the United States and a swelling Haitian-American population here has helped the effort.
