Members of the airline's OnePass program can donate miles to the American Red Cross and AmeriCares.

To make a donation, OnePass members should visit the airline's Web site.

Continental, based in Houston, also is waiving change fees and additional fare collections for certain tickets to the Dominican Republic.

Continental does not fly to Haiti but does serve three cities in the neighboring country of the Dominican Republic.

Haiti was struck by a devastating earthquake Tuesday and as many as 50,000 are feared dead.
