Salvation Army Canada
Canadians text “HAITI” to 45678 to donate $5.00 to The Salvation Army’s efforts in Haiti from any Rogers Wireless or Bell Mobility phone.

The proceeds of each text donation will support the ongoing efforts to serve the victims of the recent horrific earthquake that has left thousands dead and many more without adequate food, clean water or shelter.
