The enormous need is clear. And it will be there for a long time to come. So a group of companies that are normally highly competitive are coming together in an effort to help the Red Cross’s fund-raising efforts.
Rackspace, GoGrid, Peer1, ServInt and ThePlanet have put together a website at Hosting for Haiti that links up with the Red Cross’s contribution forms. To raise awareness, their employees are taking part in a viral campaign across the social networks, which is where I learned about it.
Payments can be made directly to the Red Cross with either a credit card or Amazon payments.
