Hurricane Sandy has moved on from the eastern United States, but relief efforts are just beginning. If you would like to help out, you can use your phone to make a $10 donation via text to the Red Cross.

To do so, text "Redcross" to 90999. You'll receive a reply, asking you to confirm by texting "yes."
