Text Message Donations to Haiti Pass $4 Million

mGive, a non-profit organization working with Red Cross to collect donations via text message, has announced that they have collected over $4 million for Haitian relief. Jenifer Snyder, mGive's executive director, said that donations are coming in at the rate of $200,000 an hour, though they have capacity to take on more.

By way of comparison, Red Cross collected only $400,000 in mobile donations after Hurricane Katrina in 2005.
