Retweets from the States has meant that Red Cross has been trending for around 24+ hours, as people are asked to donate $10 each via text messaging. My tweet 9 hours ago: “Red Cross have been using amazing text campaign for Haiti in the States, but in UK, can donate online: http://ow.ly/WfBA“. ITV ‘This Morning’ has started to appear on Twitter this morning: “RT @itvthismorning: Haiti Emergency Appeal http://bit.ly/81BXKE Red Cross 24hr Donation Line: 0845 053 5353.” Interesting to see comments people are making – in the States, reflections on how easily $10 is throw away, and how much difference each individual can make… inspiring stuff.
