Royal Caribbean donates revenues to haitian relief effort.

After the devastating earthquake in Haiti, it's easy to point fingers at those who vacation on its shores in seeming indifference to the tragedy.

The alternative, however, deprives the Haitians of the income so crucial to them.

Royal Caribbean, one of the largest foreign investors in Haiti,is also delivering much-needed supplies on its stops there, has pledged a minimum $1 million in aid, and is donating the destination's net revenues to the relief effort.

Passengers are given an opportunity to donate to the Food for the Poor's Haiti Relief Fund.

USA Today has published the full text of Royal Caribbean's announcement of Haitian aid.
