Mobile Giving For Haiti Earthquake Relief Passes $20 Million in Donations More Organizations Join List of Available Short Codes to Donate in U.S. & Canada

SEATTLE, Jan. 18 /PRNewswire/ --


What:

Donations made via mobile phones for Haiti Earthquake Relief have surpassed $20 million across all the short codes managed by the Mobile Giving Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping other non-profits raise funds through mobile.


On Sunday, thanks to widespread marketing on national broadcast outlets, mobile donations increased by $3.5 million, raising the total amount from $16+ million reported by MGF yesterday to more than $20 million.  The Foundation continues to see donations come in at an increasing pace.  MGF will report updated numbers throughout the week.  


How:

By texting a keyword to a designated short code via a mobile phone, a micro-donation of $5 or $10 can be made to aid the millions of people affected by this tragedy.  100% of your donation goes to the recipient charity, and the donation appears as a charge on your carrier bill, standard rates may apply.
