As football fans across America gear up to watch the playoffs this weekend, the National Football League has a message for them: Don't forget about the people of Haiti.

Both CBS and FOX will air a 30-second NFL public-service announcement during the AFC and NFC divisional playoff games this weekend asking viewers to contribute to relief efforts in the wake of the 7.0 earthquake that rocked the impoverished Caribbean island Tuesday evening.
