Send Text Message to Help Haiti
Tragedy of historic proportions is happening in our backyard – please consider skipping lunch for one day and save a life in Haiti by sending your contribution to the below charities via text message from your cell phone. This will also allow you to avoid scams that are on the increase.
The text message donation is a convenient way to help. While message donation is still a gray area because many people have not heard of it, in the wake of the earthquake that hit Haiti, the American Red Cross and singer Wyclef Jean’s Yele Haiti project amongst others are encouraging donors to text a keyword to a specific number, which will automatically donate $5 or $10 to earthquake relief and bill it to the user’s cell phone. The organizations listed below are legitimate campaigns to text message contributions to. They are safe, so do not hesitate to save a life. Thank you.
Text “HAITI” to “90999” to donate $10 on behalf of the American Red Cross.
Text “YELE” to “501501” to donate $5 on behalf of The Yéle Haiti Foundation.
Text “HAITI” to “20222” to donate $10 on behalf of The William J. Clinton Foundation.
Text “HAITI” to “85944” to donate $10 on behalf of the Rescue Union Mission and MedCorp International.
If you want to help the earthquake-devastated Haitian people, who cannot return home from the US to the dire conditions in their country, to get Temporary Protected Status (TPS) please sign this email petition to the White House.
