AT&T Launches Initiatives to Aid Haiti Quake Victims

Dear Friends:

I wanted to send this release along in case you hadn’t yet seen the very easy way to donate relief funds for Haiti through the Red Cross. One hundred percent of all funds you donate via text message as described below will go directly to the Red Cross. AT&T is marshalling its resources in a number of ways to try to help, and I know we are all greatly saddened by this tragedy.

AT&T Launches Initiatives to Aid Haiti Quake Victims

AT&T* is providing a $50,000 donation to Télécoms Sans Frontières (TSF) to support their relief work on disasters in Haiti and around the globe. TSF is the leading international humanitarian organization specializing in emergency telecommunications.

TSF has deployed an emergency team from its American base in Managua to provide vital support for emergency telecommunications in Haiti, taking with it satellite mobile and fixed telecommunications tools.

In addition, wireless customers of AT&T can send $10 donations to the Red Cross International Relief Fund by typing the word HAITI and sending it to 90999 via text message from their mobile device. Standard text messaging charges will be waived for all donations after January 13, 2010. A confirmation message will arrive within a few minutes, to which the customer replies "yes” to finalize the donation. The donations will appear as a line-item on the customer’s bill or be debited from a prepaid account. 

One hundred percent of all money donated through texting to 90999 will be passed on to the Red Cross. The funds raised through the program go to the Red Cross to provide shelter, food, counseling and other assistance to the thousands of victims in Haiti. According to mGive, more than $5.2 million has been raised from people texting Haiti to 90999. To learn more, click here.
