I was pretty tired yesterday after hauling around gear in the heat and editing through all my photos, so I feel I left you some important information in my post about visiting the scholars. This is an extension of that post.

Text RED<space>AMOUNT to 2899 (Globe) or 4143 (Smart)
Text DONATE<space>AMOUNT<space>4-digit M-PIN<space>REDCROSS to 2882
You can donate the following denominations:
Globe: 5, 25, 100, 300, 500 or 1000
Smart: 10, 25, 50, 100, 300, 500 or 1000
