Some Haiti relief efforts include buying iPhone covers, donating old phones

As we mentioned before, a lot of employees in the tech industry (programmers, developers, etc.) are donating their time and services to help the relief efforts in Haiti. But there are other ways you can help with your wallet and get something pretty in return.

After major disasters, there are usually a lot of artistic retail fundraisers, like special designer t-shirts, but there's plenty of room for gadget designs here too. One such company getting involved this way is Uncommon, which has several different iPhone cover designs up for sale. While they seem pricey at $39.99 a pop, 100% of the profits go to the Red Cross.

There are also ways you can get involved without paying at all, like donating an old cell phone. You could also opt for this iPhone decal of the Haitian flag to show support, but it doesn't look like any of the proceeds are going to actually help the country.

But on a very serious note, be very aware of what you're buying and signing up for when it comes to these charitable activities online. Like the aftermath of any major catastrophe, there are always scammers looking to take advantage of other people's generosity.

What other ways have you seen tech and the Haitian disaster relief join forces?
