What should we do?

This Journal was created in the morning of January 13, 2010, as a place for fandomers to help raise money to help in the rescues, recoveries and rebuilding of Haiti following the tragic earthquake on January 12, 2010.

To help figure out what's best to do, I've made a poll (see below). Whatever gets the most votes may not be the final decision - things may be averaged or blended - but it's good food for thought. Comments and questions about any of this please, as I've never set up one of these before - and help from someone who has would be much appreciated.
This poll is closed.
