In the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew, Apple has once again turned to its digital storefronts to accept donations from customers who wish to help the victims of the recent tropical cyclone.
If you want to make a donation to aid the disaster relief efforts in the areas affected by Hurricane Matthew, go to the iTunes Store or the App Store on your device, select the appropriate campaign banner on the storefront, and choose the amount you wish to donate.
Donations are available in $5, $10, $25, $50, $100, and $200 denominations, and are charged to the credit card associated with your iTunes Store account. Note that donations cannot be made using iTunes Store credits.
The full amount, i.e., 100 percent, of donations collected through the campaign will be transferred by Apple to the American Red Cross, which are responsible for providing shelter, food, emotional support, and other assistance to victims of disasters like Hurricane Matthew. Of course, you can donate directly to the American Red Cross, but Apple’s campaign offers the ease of charging donations to donors’ iTunes Store accounts.
