If you're wondering what you can do to help the Haitians, send a SMS (or text) to "90999" and type "Haiti" to donate $10 to the American Red Cross relief effort. CTIA and the wireless industry are working with the American Red Cross to encourage U.S. consumers to donate via text. The U.S. carriers pass through 100% of the donations.
Another option is to send $5 to "501501" and type "YELE" to support initiatives operated by the Mobile Giving Foundation. Carriers that support the Mobile Giving Foundation campaign pass through 100% of what’s collected to the charities.
If you donate to either (or both) organizations, the donations will be billed on your next wireless statement.
