Donate to the Red Cross via txt message

I sent in an inquiry to the Red Cross earlier this week about donations to the organization via shortcode. The American Red Cross has one set up for cellular users on American mobile networks, however, as I learned, Canada did not have a similar option for the Canadian Red Cross. Until today.

Here is the email I received from a friend at the Canadian Red Cross. They tell me that donations via shortcode are now live today.

So there you go. Text REDCROSS to 30333 to donate $5. Please pass this message along.
