From Your Phone

In the U.S., Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has set up an aid line; cell phone users can text "haiti" to 90999 and $10 will go to relief efforts in Haiti. Or, to donate $5 to Wyclef Jean's Haitian Yele charity, text "yele" to 501501. In both cases, you'll see the charge on your next phone bill.
