iTunes, Donation For Haitian Earthquake Relief

Apple has set up a feature on its iTunes Store main page to allow users to donate to the American Red Cross in support of relief efforts in the wake of Tuesday’s massive earthquake in Haiti. The donations, which are available in six denominations ranging from $5 to $200, will be processed as any other iTunes purchase, allowing convenient billing for existing iTunes users, and 100% of the donated amount will be passed along to the Red Cross.

Update: Tried donating. But it requires a US based credit card to proceed. Lame.

      The move was noble. But better execution in accepting donations would be better. Why shouldn’t they allow transfer of iTunes credit is beyond my comprehension.
