Donate to Red Cross with iTunes: DNews Nugget

//

Donate to Red Cross in iTunes: As the United States deals with the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy, iTunes now allows users to donate to the Red Cross as easily as buying a song, reports The Verge.

"You can donate anywhere from $5 to $200 via iTunes, but Apple warns that it 'may not qualify for any tax deduction or other tax benefits,'" their post reads. In addition to iTunes donation, you can give directly to the Red Cross through their website, RedCross.org or through any number of other foundations.

With regard to food drives you might be seeing on television, the Red Cross would prefer cash or blood and does NOT accept food donations.

Equally important to a cash gift is blood donation. To find a blood drive near you or make an appointment at a nearby office visit their website RedCrossBlood.org.

You can also make a quick donation by texting REDCROSS to 90999. This will give $10 to American Red Cross Disaster Relief. The $10 will then show up on your phone bill. Regular message and data rates will also apply.
