Mobile giving at its most compelling: text your donations to Haiti

Usually I write about the benefits of mobile payments in terms of the great convenience or the interesting social experiments, but today's tragedy in Haiti provides the most compelling use case so far: through mGive, you can immediately text your donations to relief organizations on the ground.

To donate $10 to Red Cross International Relief, simply text Haiti to 90999.
