Text-to-Give $10 to The Salvation Army’s Relief Efforts in Chile

The Salvation Army, which has had a presence in Chile since 1909, is requesting donations to help it provide support and hope to the people of that nation who were affected by the record 8.8-magnitude earthquake that hit that country.

 
PRLog - Mar. 1, 2010 - Text the word “chile” to 52000 to make a one-time $10 donation billed to cell phone account.

Following a devastating 8.8 magnitude earthquake in Chile during the early hours of Saturday morning (27 February), Salvation Army emergency Services were immediately mobilized to provide support and comfort. International financial assistance is already on the way. The Salvation Army has had a presence in Chile since 1909 and today offers social services including hospitals, schools for impoverished children and adult rehabilitation.

To support its relief efforts in Chile, The Salvation Army has already established a text-to-give program that works on all major cell-phone carriers within the United States. This number is for people who want to give a small amount quickly. All normal giving channels are still available for donations. The text message will automatically provide a one time $10 donation to disaster relief efforts in Haiti. Wireless Factory, with offices in Denmark and Miami, FL, is partnering in the effort by focusing on the infrastructure for the fast and efficient mobile donations.

By texting the word "CHILE" to 52000 via a mobile phone, a micro-donation of $10 can be made to aid the people affected by this tragedy. 100% of your donation goes to the Salvation Army, and the donation appears as a charge on your carrier bill, standard rates may apply.

The earthquake epicenter was approximately 90 miles North west of the city of Concepción in Southern Chile.  This is approximately 350 miles from the capital of Santiago. Nevertheless, according to officials on the ground, the quake was of a 7.0 magnitude in the Santiago metropolitan region. People have flocked to the streets as numerous aftershocks continue to pummel the country, severely affecting older buildings in the more historical areas of the larger cities.
