Customers – prepaid or postpaid – should text the word “Haiti” to 4357(HELP) to make their donation. Each text costs $5. The entire amount collected across the Caribbean will be donated to the relief effort.

LIME Caribbean CEO David Shaw said: “We know that all of the Caribbean is deeply affected by what has occurred in Haiti and that many of our customers want to do whatever they can to help so we are happy to provide a way for people to make their contributions.”

In addition, LIME employees have launched an employee donation initiative across the 13 islands in which the company operates to collect cash, clothing, canned, non-perishable food and personal hygiene items to send to Haiti.

The LIME Caribbean CEO added: “LIME will be delighted to match-dollar for dollar-all contributions collected from employees across our business. We add our sympathies to those already expressed and hope that our contribution will assist even in some small way.”

The Company’s contributions will be channel through both the Caribbean Disaster Emergency Management Agency (CDEMA), and the Red Cross.
