    Schweb, Apple users may also donate to the Red Cross through iTunes, using their iTunes account with Apple. Apple is sponsoring the page and 100% of the proceeds go to the Red Cross.

    Thanks for the info. A few things to consider when donating through iTunes:

    - It's not tax deductible. Since you are not technically donating to the charity but rather to Apple who is passing on the money, you will not receive a proper IRS verifiable donation receipt. This of course is important for people who need to itemize their taxes.

    - The only choice is The Red Cross who many not be everyone's favorite charity. Personally I don't care much for them, but I know many other people do. Above we've listed a few different ones to choose from.
