Donate to the Haiti Relief Effort Via Text Message


The death toll in the Haiti earthquake disaster has yet to be determined, but this much is certain: thousands of Haitians urgently need medical supplies and care as well as basic necessities such as food and water. The Red Cross has set up a simple campaign that allows you to donate $10 to the Haiti relief fund by texting ‘Haiti’ to the number 90999. According to Mashable, over $800,000 has already been raised through this effort – tremendous progress! As a community, we can raise even more.

Many of us here at Boingo are rallying behind the Red Cross text campaign and we hope that you, too, will join us in this effort.

To contribute now, simply text ‘Haiti’ to the number 90999. You will receive a text asking you to confirm your donation to the Red Cross. After you reply ‘Yes,’  the $10 donation will be applied to your phone bill.

Kudos to the Red Cross for taking fast action via a $1 milllion donation and organizing the text campaign. The Boingo team sends our warm thoughts and prayers to the people of Haiti.
