Habitat for Humanity, NRB, Oxfam, Save the Children Foundation, UNICEF, World Vision and Others Join List of Available Short Codes to Donate in U.S. & Canada

SEATTLE, Jan. 16 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ --


 
 

What:

In less than 72 hours, donations made via mobile phones for Haiti Earthquake Relief have surpassed $10 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.


Already a mobile-giving record for funds raised for a single cause, this amount demonstrates the generosity of people across the world.  But the need is great...


As more organizations join the relief efforts in Haiti, additional short codes are available for making monetary donations to aid those affected by the recent earthquake.


 
 

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.
