Verizon Wireless Announces Their Earthquake Relief Support

Sun Mar 13, 2011 - 4:45 PM EDT - By Annie Latham

On Sunday, Verizon Wireless announced the company's mobile giving program for customers looking for a quick and easy way to contribute to Japan relief efforts.

Customers can use their mobile phones to make $10 donations via text message to a host of non-profit organizations responding to the earthquake and subsequent tsunami.

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.
