I can not believe I neglected to mention Haiti and the horrible devastation they are going through. Mother Earth is very powerful. We must remember this. My heart goes out to all of those that have to suffer, and I am so happy that so many are choosing to help, either by donation, or by being there in person.
It is incredible the amount of funds that have come in through mobile donations. Verizon wireless is donating dollar for dollar all donations that come in from VZW customers. Texting "Haiti" to 90999 will donate 10 dollars to the Red Cross for the relief fund. Other companies are also accepting donations- here is how you can donate to them:
Text: "Yele" to 501501 to donate 5 dollars on behalf of the Yele Foundation, the leading contributor to rebuilding Haiti. This is founded by Wyclef Jean.
"Haiti" to 20222 to donate 10 dollars to the Clinton Foundation for Haiti Relief.
"Haiti" to 85944 to donate on behalf of the International Medical Corporation.
"Haiti" to 25383 to donate 5 dollars on behalf of International Rescue Committee.
Some good news? In less than 3 days, more than 300,000 Vzw customers have donated more than 3 million. As of 11am today, Verizon Wireless has reported that the sum of all donations by mobile total 9 million, which is by far the 'largest day in the history of Mobile giving'.
