So far, mobile subscribers have donated $27 million via Mobile Accord’s mGive micro-giving platform. The rate picked up over the holiday weekend, as $7 million was donated yesterday. In the largest mobile-donation movement in history, around 25 percent of all money donated to Haitian relief efforts were done by mobile. At peak periods, more than $10,000 per minute was donated. "People are increasingly doing more than just talking on their mobile phones," said Mobile Accord Chairman James Eberhard. "Since it is one of the few items people always carry with them, the power of mobile giving is hard to overestimate."

The weekend influx was mainly due to national television appeals -- during the NFL Playoffs this weekend, a PSA featuring the Saints’ Jonathan Vilma and the Colts’ Pierre Garçon, both of whom are of Hatian origin was played at least twice hourly, for example – as well as the increased participation of non-profits.

"The devastation in Haiti motivated millions of Americans to make a difference in the lives of the earthquake victims," said Roger Lowe of the American Red Cross. "Raising this amount of money -- $10 at a time – is a true testament to the compassion and generosity of the American people."
