Want to help relief efforts? Text Haiti

by Employee ‎01-15-2010 05:07 PM - edited ‎01-15-2010 05:15 PM

Haiti.jpg$9 million and counting. That's the amount of money contributed to Haiti relief efforts by people texting contributions using their wireless phones.

 

The abundance of giving is a tremendous example of our nation's giving spirit and a great example of the immediate impact possible with technology.

 

Already, more than $2.9 million of that money has been transmitted to the American Red Cross from Verizon Wireless, representing the donations made by Verizon Wireless customers for the first two days of the campaign.

 

The Verizon Foundation and Verizon employees have also contributed to relief efforts.  As of Friday afternoon, more than $250,000 had been raised through the Verizon employees matching gift program. ($125,000 from employees and $125,000 from the Verizon Foundation.)

 

In addition, the Verizon Foundation has awarded a total of $100,000 in grants to World Vision and Food for the Poor to assist earthquake victims.

 

With the magnitude of devastation, there is still much more to be done.

 

And, fortunately, helping is as simple as texting to the numbers and organizations below.

I am glad to see that Verizon is helping, however I find it odd and disturbing that while everyone  seems to be helping, Verizon is charging texting rates to the people who are trying to donate money to Haiti. I would think a big corporation would  waive those fees for the texts that are donating money. Hopefully its not greed behind it

Hello Marilyn,

 

I'm happy to report that Verizon Wireless does not charge text messaging fees on contributions made through texting.

 

So far, Verizon Wireless has transmitted $7.82 million to the American Red Cross. That represents 100 percent of the money pledged by Verizon Wireless customers through texting "HAITI" to 90999  as of 11 a.m. Wednesday, Jan. 20th.

 

Additionally, Verizon has waived all long-distance useage charges from residential landlines and Verizon Wireless phones to Haiti, retroactive to Jan. 12 through Jan. 31.

 

Thank you for your interest in Verizon's Haiti support efforts, and you can be confident that all money contributed through text donations by Verizon Wireless customers will go the the assisting nonprofit.
