It is very easy to donate your own funds to Haiti. One example is to text HAITI to 90999. Of course, what if you’re not using your own phone?
In this case, as heard on NPR, a resourceful individual texted from AT&T retail store display phones. In fact, according to NPR, he posted on Facebook (which doesn’t really make sense) that he wondered if AT&T was going to get ticked at him for continuing to use their display phones.
It doesn’t make sense since NPR indicated that the employee posted anonymously on his Facebook page, which sort of removes the anonymity, doesn’t it. Still …
It’s unconfirmed if AT&T will come through with the funds, but NPR noted that after spending two hours on the phone with its own customer support, AT&T gave up and decided to pay up.
