The Red Cross has raised more than $25 million in text message donations, and is still growing by $200,000 a day.
By texting “Haiti” to 90999, Americans can donate $10.00 to the American Red Cross with ease, which is the main reason why this campaign has been the most successful mobile campaign to date!
According to the ARC, an individual donation of $10 will stock one first aid kit containing bandages, ointment, and medicine, including antibiotics.
When it comes to tragedy, the United States is always one of the first to arrive at the scene, ready to contribute everything we have to offer, and more. I’m constantly reminded how proud I am to be an American.
