It appears that the donation matching period has ended. I can no longer find any reference to it on Weather Channel sites. The link below goes to directly to the standard Red Cross Donation page.
I could find no references as to what the final matched contribution was. Several days ago I checked on the link below and the donations were in excess of $151,000.
At this time I believe that the Weather Channel's matching donation has ended, but the need is still great in the affected areas. You may still make a donation to the Red Cross Disaster Relief at the link below.
End of Edit.
If you have been thinking about donating to the Red Cross for Hurricane Sandy disaster relief, for a limited time you can double your donation. The Weather Channel is matching viewer donations up to $1,000,000 dollars. Use this link to donate:
American Red Cross, Weather Channel, Disaster Relief Donation
Donating is easy, you only have to fill in your name, address, phone number and email address and you can use your major credit card or PayPal. It takes about 2 minutes.
Thanks for lending a helping hand, and thanks to The Weather Channel for their generosity.
