OK To Text That Cash To Japan, Boxer Says

March 29, 2011

AT&T, Sprint Nextel, T-Mobile and Verizon Wireless say they'll speed up donations to Japan that are made using mobile phones, Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., says.

Boxer had asked the companies to make sure that red tape did not slow down the flow of donations made by sending text messages. "If not expedited, these text donations can take as long as 90 days to be sent to relief organizations while the contributions are being collected through the wireless company's billing process," her office said in a statement.

"I am pleased that our nation's four largest wireless providers will expedite mobile donations to Japanese relief efforts to help the victims of this terrible disaster," Boxer said.

"Now all those who send their donations by text can rest assured that their contributions are being rushed to assist those most in need."
