Our “Giving Back” feature is one of our favorites. We love learning more about people and companies that are making a difference in this world. It got us thinking about how easy it is to not take action, and to simply rely on other people to make changes. However, every little thing helps and can touch the life of someone else. It’s been over a week since Hurricane Sandy and many are still without power and heat. It’s going to take a lot of time and effort to get things back to how they were before, and the East Coast needs help.
You can easily help by donating to the Red Cros. Consider making a $10 donation by texting REDCROSS to 90999. Those who would like to give more can donate up to $50 via text. This will show up on your phone bill or be automatically deducted from your prepaid plan. If you want to cancel the donation, text STOP to 90999.
For other organizations to donate by text, head to Life Hacker.
Also, Refinery29 has a great list of ways to donate.
