If you would like to help, Elizabeth Woyke has compiled a list of relief organizations you can contribute to via your cell-phone:
“These particular campaigns have been organized by the mGive Foundation, a Denver-based charity that manages mobile donation programs. MGive says it vets and certifies the organizations it works with.
