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.
