    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.

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