How and where to donate? Here is how you can contribute:
- If you are in the US, you can text GIVE TURKEY to 80088 to automatically donate $10 to Global Giving’s Turkey Earthquake Relief Fund. Message and data rates may apply. Their terms of service are here.
- You can also visit Global Giving’s Turkey Earthquake Relief Fund directly by clicking here.
UPDATE: On Yahoo! Answers, someone has questioned the legitimacy of this blog post or of Global Giving. Just so everyone knows: I am not getting anything out of this (other than the knowledge that I have provided a way for people to contribute and, of course, page views). And if you want to know more about Global Giving, see the Wiki entry here, and see the SourceWatch entry here.
I don’t know if the International Committee of the Red Cross will set up an option to give directly for Turkey over the coming few days. If they do, they are always a good option.
I’m sure there are many other good options. Please feel free to link to them in the comments.
UPDATE: And just to show that I put my money where my mouth is, here is a screen capture of the receipt for my own donation (click on the picture to see it in a readable size):
