    What:  A devastating earthquake struck Chile early Saturday, toppling
           homes, collapsing bridges and plunging trucks into the fractured
           earth. A tsunami set off by the magnitude-8.8 quake threatened
           every nation around the Pacific Ocean - roughly a quarter of the
           globe.
    
           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
           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.
    
    Who:   There are several organizations that are responding to this
           urgent need with mobile-giving efforts, including the
