Apple has posted a prominent link on the iTunes Store main page that allows users to donate to the American Red Cross to support relief efforts in Haiti after the devastating earthquake they had early last week. You can make donations in six amounts ranging from $5 to $200, this is handled just like any other iTunes purchase, and all of the proceeds go directly to the Red Cross.

On January 12, a series of earthquakes measuring 6.5 to 7.3 on the Richter scale devastated Haiti. The American Red Cross is working with its partners in the global Red Cross and Red Crescent network, including the Haitian Red Cross, and other partners to assist those affected by this disaster.

Your gift to the American Red Cross will support emergency relief efforts to help those affected by this earthquake. Assistance provided by the American Red Cross may include sending relief supplies, mobilizing relief workers and providing financial resources.

Also worth noting is the massive Indie+Relief program being held on January 20, where some 100+ indie Mac developers are donating that day’s proceeds to Haiti. Indie+Relief is the brain child of my friend and fellow Evansville resident, Justin Williams. Great job guy.

So, I highly encourage each and every one of our readers to donate to this cause. It’s times like these that prove that we can all get along in the world, if only for a moment, and that should make each and every one of us proud.
