Confirmed victory

Around the world, people like you and me are responding in any way we can to help Japan. But one of the easiest ways to help - texting to give by mobile - actually isn't the help it sounds like.

During the response to Haiti, cellphone companies processed mobile donations to relief organizations right away. But for Japan, they aren't making this same exception and it could take as much as 90 days for donations to reach people in need.

Please help convince them to immediately processes donations so donations reach where they are needed now.  

For more information visit the mGiving Foundation: "How long does it take for my charity to receive the funds? In response to the Haiti Relief Effort, carriers are remitting  donations immediately to nonprofit organizations.  Generally, the typical time frame for remittance is based upon the billing cycles of the donors and can take, on average, 90 days from time of donation for the charity to receive the funds."

Winning this campaign depends on our ability to call on thousands of supporters like you. After signing this petition, please follow us on Facebook - just click 'Like' at the top of the page.

The twin disasters of the earthquake and tsunami that pummeled the eastern coast of Japan have been incomprehensible in their scale, and deserve our best efforts to help the millions of people affected recover.

The scale of this tragedy will stretch international recovery efforts to their limits, and any additional resources that are contributed should be put to use as soon as possible.

Currently, there is a wait time of up to 90 days for mobile donations to reach those in need in Japan. This is unacceptable. Tens of thousands of people still need to be rescued and even more require aid and support. By signing on to this petition, you will be helping to have money remitted to those in need as soon as possible.

Thank you,
