The Really Easy Way To Donate To Haiti Disaster Relief

Andrew Sullivan highlighted what has to be among the easiest ways to donate to the Haiti relief effort:

Text "HAITI" To "90999"
The State Department offers the simplest way to donate ($10) to the relief effort.

The State Department expands a little more:

text "HAITI" to "90999" and a donation of $10 will be given automatically to the Red Cross to help with relief efforts, charged to your cell phone bill;

Impressive, no? And it appears to work, as I had no problem donating over SMS.

SMS may be simple, but boy is it powerful. I hope the program can do some serious good.
