You may have heard about the magnitude 7.0 earthquake in Haiti on Tuesday. If you’re looking for a way to help out, make sure you donate directly to a relief organization and not to a middleman. Unfortunately, scammers are great at using times of crisis to act as the middleman when none are needed. The popular method of texting the word “Haiti” to the number 90999 will donate $10 to the American Red Cross and charge the $10 to your phone bill. Here are some more texting donations you can use:
*Text the word “YELE” to 501501 to donate $5 to the Yele Haiti foundation.
*Text the word “HAITI” to 20222 to donate $10 to the Clinton
*Text “HAITI” to 25383 to donate $5 to the International Rescue Committee.
*Text “HAITI” to 85944 to donate $10 to the International Medical Corps.
If you’re still undecided, why not ask Hunch how you can help? Don’t forget to do your research before handing over the money.
