“ Never has so much
money been raised for
relief so soon after a disaster.
This is a watershed moment.
—Albe Angel, Founder and CEO
of Give On the Go, in response to
the outpouring of aid that occurred
via mobile and social media channels
immediately following the 7.2
magnitude earthquake that devastated
Port Au Prince, Haiti. Just two days
after the earthquake, the American
Red Cross had raised over $5 million
from over 500,000 mobile phone users.
