Sometimes your faith in humanity is restored.

The DEC Haiti appeal has raised over £25 million just from the news coverage alone. This exceeds the £20 million raised by last year’s Children in Need campaign which (while still a worthy cause) is mercilessly peddled and trailed by the BBC for two long weeks.

Don’t forget to mark your donation as ‘Gift Aid’ which allows DEC to reclaims 28p for every pound given.
