Texting for Flood Relief: Text2HELP
Thousands of people have been affected by recent flooding in the south, and the Red Cross is there, providing shelter, food, emotional support and other assistance. You can help people affected by disasters, like the floods, by donating $5 to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund using Text 2HELP.
Subscribers of participating wireless carriers can donate $5 simply by text messaging the keyword “GIVE” to “2HELP” (24357). Donations will appear on customers’ monthly bills or be debited from a prepaid account balance. Standard text messaging rates apply. To opt-out send “STOP” to 24357.
The national Text 2HELP Initiative is a partnership between the American Red Cross and The Wireless Foundation that allows customers of participating wireless carriers to send a text message to the Red Cross and make a donation to support the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund. This fund enables the Red Cross to provide shelter, food, emotional support and other assistance to victims of all disasters. On those rare occasions when donations exceed Red Cross expenses for a specific disaster, contributions are used to prepare for and serve victims of other disasters.
