So last week I was looking at some photojournalism on Haiti via, and came across this picture. In an instant, the appeal appeared. No, this isn't a real ad for the Red Cross. It's the result of a two frustrated humans who wish they could do more. But even though it isn't an official ad, if you're so moved, we encourage that you consider giving generously to support the human disaster in Haiti by clicking here. Because the Red Cross doesn't yet have a simple web page for their Haiti campaign – as of now it's

Fake RedCross/Haiti ad created by Jim Mitchem and Jeff Sutthoff.

The photo is from the Boston Globe's Big Picture section. No, we didn't ask to use it for this speculative piece. Remember, this is fake. The situation is real.
