A long list of Mac and iPhone application developers have teamed up through the Indie+Relief Web site to help raise funds for assistance in Haiti following the earthquake that devastated the country. All proceeds from the special one-day event on January 20 will go to organizations that are offering relief efforts in the country.

Haiti was struck by a 7.0-magnitude earthquake on January 12, causing extensive damage around the Port-au-Prince area. To date, over 70,000 victim's bodies have been recovered and estimates for the death toll are around 200,000.
