Viewers were able to phone in their donations, text their donations or give their gift via the organizations’ websites.
We also had a way to donate via Twitter by using the service Twitpay. (if you haven’t registered your donation at RT2Give, yet, here is the link you need)
The telethon received many generous corporate donations. Social Suite host Ryan Seacrest brought Bing to the table. The company pledged to donate $10 for every retweet (up to 10,000 tweets) of a tweet Ryan sent at the top of the broadcast. By the end, Seacrest's tweet had surpassed 10,000 retweets, leading Bing to donate $100,000 towards the efforts to aid the people of the Gulf Coast.
And don’t forget our CharityBuzz.com auction is live until July 7th – so there is plenty of time to bid on some great items (a pair of Larry’s signed suspenders, a signed LeBron James jersey, American Idol concert tickets & much more!) and help people in the Gulf.
Thanks to all of you who watched, donated and decided to help your neighbors and the wildlife affected by the worst environmental disaster in U.S. history.
You can continue to make a donation via Impact Your World.
