Apple Helps Out Haiti Earthquake Efforts Through iTunes

In the midst of these troubling times in Haiti in which thousands are feared death, and thousands more suffering as a result of Tuesday’s earthquake, we find companies assembling to be a part of the recovery efforts. We’ve reported on Google’s one million dollar donation, T-Mobile’s generous free-calling initiative, and now — a company we very frequently talk about — Apple.

Through its iTunes application, accessed millions of times per day by you guessed it, millions of people, the Cupertino-based company is allowing end users to donate directly from iTunes, with 100% of donations going to the American Red Cross.

Users can donate from $5, to $50, to even $200. Users feeling extremely generous, wanting to donate more than $200, may do so by heading directly to the American Red Cross donation page.
