Major Card Networks Waive Fees on Haitian Relief Donations

American Express, MasterCard and Visa have all announced responses to the devastating earthquake in Haiti - including waiving interchange fees for a period for specific US-based charities that are providing support to Haitian relief. In addition, the card networks have made their own contributions and are offering increased employee matches to donations made to these charities.

Here are the details for: American Express, MasterCard and Visa. See also this New York TImes Bucks blog post.

Want to donate via text message from your mobile phone? See "Donations To Haiti Via Text Message Surge Past $5 Million" on TechCrunch. "Donations are said to be coming in to the tune of $200,000 each hour, so they’re very likely coming close to $6 million raised at this point. Impressive stuff."
