WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama says the Haitian
earthquake relief effort will not be measured in days or weeks, but in months and even years.

Obama is asking former Presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton to coordinate efforts to involve more Americans in the recovery and rebuilding effort that's needed in Haiti. He met with the ex-presidents Saturday at the White House.

Bush says the most effective way for people to help is to "just send your cash." Clinton says Haitians can build a better future if Americans do their part.

People are asked to go to a new Web site -
www.clintonbushhaitifund.org - for make donations.
