The Wireless Foundation announced today that U.S. wireless subscribers pledged more than $190,000 since September to help the victims of disasters like Hurricane Gustav and Ike through a unique Text 2HELP(TM) program, making it the wireless industry's most successful charitable, non-profit mobile text fundraiser ever. Text 2HELP donations, which go to the Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund, provide shelter, food, counseling and other assistance to the victims of thousands of disasters across the country. Subscribers of participating wireless carriers can donate $5 up to five times simply by texting "GIVE" to 24357 (2HELP). The charges for these donations appear on the subscriber's monthly bill, or are debited from prepaid account balances. Standard text messaging rates may apply.
