(Newser) – President Obama said today that America "stands united" with the Haitian people as he thanked two former presidents for agreeing to help raise billions to rebuild the Caribbean nation. Obama met in the Oval Office with George W. Bush and Bill Clinton, and they announced a new website for donations, http://www.clintonbushhaitifund.org.

"I know a lot of people want to send blankets or water. Just send your cash," said Bush, who made his first visit to the Oval Office since leaving the White House last year. Clinton, who also is the special UN envoy to Haiti, called the nation "one of the most remarkable, unique places I have ever been."
