itunesHurricane Sandy, which devastated the Mid-Atlantic and Northeastern parts of the U.S., is considered to be the largest recorded Atlantic hurricane in terms of diameter, with winds reaching 1,100 miles. Now Apple is working with the American Red Cross to help thousands of victims affected by the tropical storm. Apple has setup a page in the iTunes Store for people to pledge donations ranging from $5 to $200, as shown in the image above. You can check it out here.

Additionally, Amazon also partnered with the American Red Cross and has also launched a page for relief donations. You can view it here. It’s important to note that this isn’t really the first time for Apple to help. The American Red Cross and Apple also partnered for the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami in Japan and for the 2010 Haiti earthquake as well. If you’re willing to help, you can send in your donations now.
