TORONTO, Jan. 13 - Rogers Communications Inc. announced it has launched a mobile giving campaign to enable its customers to donate funds to help the relief efforts in Haiti in the wake of a 7.2 magnitude earthquake on January 12, 2010, which has left many parts of the country devastated.
Rogers Wireless and Fido customers are encouraged to help those in Haiti by donating to Partners In Health: Haiti and other Haitian relief organizations. By sending the text message "HELP" to shortcode 1291 beginning January 13th, 2010, customers can donate $5.00 CDN to the Haitian relief efforts.
