AT&T enables $10 text message donations to Haiti

DALLAS —

AT&T Inc. is making it easy to donate $10 via text message to assist earthquake victims in Haiti.

The telephone company said Wednesday that its wireless customers can donate the money to the Red Cross International Relief fund by sending a text message with the word "HAITI" to 90999.

After a confirmation message arrives, the customer must reply "yes" to finalize the donation, which is added to their bill or deducted from the prepaid account.

AT&T said 100 percent of the money will be passed onto the Red Cross although standard text messaging rates apply. Earlier this year, AT&T gave $200,000 to the Red Cross as part of a five-year, $1 million commitment.

The company is also donating $50,000 to Telecoms Sans Frontieres, a humanitarian organization that has sent an emergency team with satellite mobile and fixed communications equipment to Haiti.
