8:30 a.m. New total: $841,249!! The Red Cross has 400 workers on the ground in Haiti, in addition to thousands of local volunteers. Reports now that there may be 2 million left homeless.

8:13 a.m. Sorry we're a little late getting on the live blogging wagon, but we're here now! The Chicago media have been at Hewitt all morning broadcasting from our call center and we've raised $810,404 so far! That's amazing! The McCormick Foundation is matching gifts at 50 cents on the dollar, up to $500,000. The gift isn't yet reflected in the total, so let's hit $1 million and see it spike!!
