AMERICAN RED CROSS The Red Cross is providing much needed shelter, clothes, supplies, food and blood for the people affected by Hurricane Sandy. Donating blood and goods are accepted however you'll be doing more for those in need by donating money instead of physical goods. My personal opinion, money is always better. Donate by Text message: Text the word RED CROSS to 90999 to donate $10 to American Red Cross Disaster Relief. The donation will show up on your wireless bill, or be deducted from your balance if you have a prepaid phone. You need to be 18 or older, or have parental permission, to donate this way.
