Help Haiti

There are many ways to help Haiti, and it doesn't matter which one you choose as long as you help:

Doctors Without Borders
Canadian Red Cross
Médecins du Monde
Clinton Foundation

Canadians and Americans can use several short codes to donate to charities involved in efforts in Haiti.

Cellphone users can text:

• “Yele” to 501501 to donate $5 to Wyclef Jean’s Yéle Foundation;

• “Haiti” to 85944 to donate $5 to Rescue Union Mission and MedCorp International;

• “Haiti” to 25383 to donate $5 to the International Rescue Committee;

• “Haiti” to 90999 to donate $10 to the Red Cross in the U.S.;

• “Haiti” to 45678 to donate $5 to the Salvation Army in Canada (Canada only).

Donations show up as one-time charges on the contributor’s next cellphone bill. In Canada, the service is available to Bell, Rogers, Fido, and Solo Mobile customers.
