    Verizon Wireless Provides Quick and Easy Way to Help Japan Relief


    Verizon Wireless has quickly implemented a mobile giving program for customers looking for a quick and easy way to contribute to Japan relief efforts. The company announced today that customers can use their mobile phones to make $10 donations to a host of non-profit organizations responding to the earthquake and subsequent tsunami.

    Customers can easily make a $10 donation by simply sending a text message and may choose from nine organizations aiding those in need in Japan, including the American Red Cross. Donating $10 is easy – simply text the specific word to the organization’s designated short code:

    • ADRA Relief: text SUPPORT to 85944
    • American Red Cross Relief: text REDCROSS to 90999
    • Convoy of Hope: text TSUNAMI or SUNAMI to 50555
    • GlobalGiving: text JAPAN to 50555
    • International Medical Corps: text MED to 80888
    • Mercy Corps: text MERCY to 25383
    • Salvation Army: text JAPAN to 80888
    • Save the Children Federation, Inc.: text JAPAN or TSUNAMI to 20222
    • World Relief Corp. of National Association of Evangelicals: text WAVE to 50555
    • World Vision, Inc.: text 4JAPAN or 4TSUNAMI to 20222

    Text messages are free for customers donating to any of these organizations. Verizon Wireless always waives text-messaging fees for disaster relief, and 100 percent of each $10 donation goes to the relief organization. For Verizon Wireless customers who pay monthly bills, the $10 donations will appear in customers’ next regular monthly bill. For customers using the company’s prepaid services, the $10 donations will be taken from customers’ prepaid balance.

    Awesome! Doesn't require a Verizon 4G phone right?

    Nope, just a phone. Not even a smart phone is needed.

    I forwarded this to my FB page in hopes others will see it.

    Verizon should run this as a commercial. Not to be outdone, AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint would follow suit resulting in more donations.

    While true, Android doesn't really have anything to do with this.

    Well, even if Android didn't have anything to do with it, I used my Droid to send $10 to the Red Cross.

    Again, thanks to the OP for posting!
