Stop what you're doing and go to http://crisiscommons.org/ and see how you can use your geekiness to help the people in Haiti. So far there are 8 cities in the United States holding CrisisCamps for Haiti this Saturday, January 23. There's a lot going on and more to be done. I'm sure there's a place for you. If you can't travel to one of the CrisisCamps, cash is always helpful. Low on cash? Have a garage sale. Have any gold coins you received as a gift or bought as investment? Gold prices are relatively high - it's a great time to sell. Maybe you can start a CrisisCamp in your city.
Got another idea? Blog it, tweet it, email your friends, reply here, let's do something!
