Digicel text info

We are trying to get out the word on the following new SMS system:

People of Haiti who use Digicel can text their location and needs to 4636.
The information will be distributed to numerous aid agencies who will work
to take action.

For those outside of Haiti with information please text 46737494535 with
information that you may have about people and needs in Haiti.

Background:

Texting emergency needs and location information to 4636 allows the
surviving population to report issues, receive alerts and useful information
and most importantly to get their emergency information to relief
organizations on the ground in Haiti. these services are operated by a
collaborating group of organizations including Ushahidi, InSTEDD, Sahana
Thomson Reuters Foundation, and provides a channel for many response and
information activities on the ground. We are working on also routing this to
USAID, FEMA and the UN
