Mobile Giving Codes for Chile Earthquake Relief

February 27, 2010

As it did after last month's devastating earthquake in Haiti, the Mobile Giving Foundation is helping to promote and facilitate mobile-giving campaigns to help victims of yesterday's 8.8-magnitude earthquake in Chile. As of 3:30 EST, several relief and humanitarian organizations had established short codes for mobile giving. (Updated: March 1, 5:00 p.m.):

Text the word "CHILE" to 25383 to donate $10
On behalf of Habitat for Humanity

Text the word "CHILE" to 20222 to donate $10
On behalf of World Vision

Text the word "CHILE" to 52000 to donate $10
On behalf of the Salvation Army

Text the word "CHILE" to 45678 to donate $5 (In Canada Only in English)
On behalf of UNICEF Canada

Text the word "CHILE" to 45678 to donate $5 (In Canada Only in French)
On behalf of UNICEF Canada

Text the word "SAVE" to 20222 to donate $10
On behalf of Save the Children Federation, Inc.

Text the word "CHILE" to 85944 to donate $10
On behalf of International Medical Corp

Text the word "4CHILE" to 50555 to donate $10

Text the word "CHILE" to 50555 to donate $10
On behalf of Friends of the World Food Program

As was (and is) true of the mobile campaigns for Haiti relief, 100 percent of your donation goes to the recipient charity and will appear as a charge on your carrier bill.

We'll continue to update this list as additional codes are established.
