Major wireless carriers supporting text donations for Chile earthquake

Major wireless carriers supporting text donations for Chile earthquake
As we've seen already after the tragic events that unfolded in Haiti, most of the major domestic wireless carriers were able to help the cause by accepting text message donations. In the wake of the aftermath that just occurred in Chile after one of the strongest earthquakes to ever be recorded hit the country, there have been a number of organizations that were quick to respond by also setting up SMS shortcodes to accept donations. These include Text Chile to 23583 to donate $10 to Habitat for Humanity,  20222 to donate $10 to World Vision, or 52000 to donate $10 to the Salvation Army. In doing what they can to help out, all of the major wireless providers in the country are supporting these codes – this includes AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon. In these times of trouble and distress, any help would be much appreciated and it's nice to see that these carriers are quick to act in doing what they can to help out.
