Update on death toll in Chile

In my previous post, I had mentioned that there were only 122 people said to be dead in Chile. However, now as the rubble clears and rescue squads are recovering more bodies, the toll has surpassed 700.  It’s now more important than ever to reach out to those in need and donate what you can to help these people rebuild their lives. Cash donations are encouraged, however, they are also taking clothing, canned food and other necessities [such as toiletries]. 

For a quick way to make a difference, text Chile on your mobile phone and donate up to $10 per text. Below are a list of numbers to text to that correlate with different charity organizations. [From http://www.nbcwashington.com]

  • Text the word “CHILE” to 25383 to donate $10 on behalf of the Habitat for Humanity
  • Text the word “CHILE” to 52000 to donate $10 on behalf of the Salvation Army
  • Text the word “CHILE” to 20222 to donate $10 on behalf of World Vision
