IMPORTANT: As people are searching for ways to help in Haiti, there is a surge of Tweets and Facebook posts mistakenly sharing a rumor that UPS will ship for free any package under 50 lbs to Haiti. UPS is reporting that the destruction of roads and communications networks has forced UPS to put their shipping services in Haiti on hold.

The UPS Foundation has committed $1 million (USD) in cash and in-kind aid to help the people of Haiti, and is suggesting several options that are available to offer your own help. Details here.

In addition to aid from The UPS Foundation, UPS has committed to contributing their knowledge and skills to disaster response through warehouse, transportation and distribution management, working with the World Food Programe's Logistics Emergency Teams (LETs).
