MILWAUKEE- Thanks to many of you in southeast Wisconsin, over the past three days TODAY'S TMJ4 viewers donated $116,439 to the Red Cross through TODAY'S TMJ4's phone bank.

The phone bank was set up after many of you asked what's the best way to help the victims of Superstorm Sandy along the East Coast.

Your donations will be used for blankets, food, shelter and other things people need just to get by.

Although the phone bank is over, you can still help the Red Cross by calling 800-435-7669.  Also you can text "REDCROSS" to 90999 for a $10 donation added to your phone bill.  The Red Cross says you can help by donating blood.  Appointments to donate blood can be scheduled by clicking here.
