Haiti Earthquake Appeal

Mon 01 Feb, 2010 // Firstnumber Team

As the aftermath of the Haiti Earthquake continues to grip the hearts and minds of our global community, there's never been a better time to do your bit and donate to the Haiti Earthquake Appeal.

With 300,000 Haitian people displaced and countless more still missing, the cost of rebuilding and supporting this damaged country lies firmly in the hands of those who are willing to donate.

Thankfully, the many aid organisations and charities that leapt to the aid of the Haitian people in the hours after the earthquake have made it easy to donate via phone in a number of ways.

Sending a text message that adds a small fee to your next monthly bill, has proved extremely popular and easy to do. Texting 'HAITI' to 90999 will donate £5 to the Red Cross' Haiti Relief Fund.

Other organisations - such as Oxfam - who are currently providing shelter, clean drinking water and sanitation to those affected by the earthquake are taking phone donations via credit or debit card. Donations to Oxfam by calling 0300 200 1999.
