Disaster Relief for Japan

The disaster in Japan this past weekend is just horrible. I can't begin to imagine the loss and suffering of the people and animals there. I just did something to help. We sent a couple of simple text messages to send funds to help!

The American Humane Association has sent their Red Star Animal Emergency Services to help the animal victims of the Japanese disaster.

To make a donation to these services:

Text PROTECT to 85944 to donate $10 to support efforts to provide aid to animal victims of disaster.

(A one-time donation of $10 will be added to your mobile phone bill or deducted from your prepaid balance. Messaging & Data Rates May Apply. All charges are billed by and payable to your mobile service provider. Service is available on most carriers. Donations are collected for the benefit of the "American Humane Association" by the Mobile Giving Foundation and subject to the terms found at You can unsubscribe at any time by replying STOP to short code 85944; Reply HELP to 85944 for help.)

I also texted funds to help out all the humans who are affected by the disaster. We did this by texting the American Red Cross.

Here's what you need to do:

Text REDCROSS to 90999 to Give $10 Japan Earthquake and Pacific Tsunami.
