Text Message Donations:
Texting “Haiti” to 90999 will provide a $10 donation to the American Red Cross (www.redcross.org).
Be aware that it could take up to three months for your $10 to get to the organization — but that may not be a bad thing. While donations are pouring in now, the country will need aid for months to come and your text donation will be badly needed then. Any time lapse will in no way delay the aid being provided to Haiti by the disaster relief organization.
How Much Will Help?
Here is an idea of what your donation amount will provide:
$ 25 – provides food for a day
$ 45 – provides a survival kit for a family
$100 – provides temporary shelter
Discover is matching cardholder donations, up to $1 million. They have announced an immediate commitment of $100,000 to the American Red Cross for earthquake relief efforts in Haiti, and are pledging up to $1 million more through the cardmember matching program.
Many American corporations have also set up employee matching funds — check with your employer to see if your donation can be matched.
