50555 vs. 90999?

Posted by mGive Team on Jan 22, 2010 10:40:00 AM

We have had a few questions come in asking why the Hope For Haiti Now telethon is promoting text GIVE to 50555 to donate $10, rather than text HAITI to 90999. This particular telethon is through the Entertainment Industry Foundation and benefits several charities that are helping bring relief to Haiti, whereas the HAITI to 90999 campaign supports the Red Cross only.

Both campaigns are legitimate and donations will go to help the people of Haiti. So if you have already reached your donation cap on the 90999 campaign, please text GIVE to 50555 to donate more. Every dollar helps. Let's show the people of Haiti how much we care!
