in Mobile for Nonprofits - marketing and fundraising,News

One of the fastest ways donors can help during an emergency – including a natural disaster – is through mobile text donation campaigns.

The mGive Foundation acted immediately to ensure its clients – charities – could rally their donors to help those in need in Japan.  All this is in response to the 8.9 magnitude earthquake and tsunami that struck Japan today.

There was no question what our mission would be when news of the earthquake and tsunami broke,” said Jenifer Snyder, executive director of The mGive Foundation in a press release today. “What matters most is not only setting up these powerful text donation campaigns, but getting the word out to donors so they can help the people in Japan to rebuild and recover from this tragedy.”

At the time of publication, thus far four charities have established text donation options to send disaster relief to victims of the earthquake and tsunami in Japan:

• Convoy of Hope … text TSUNAMI to 50555 to donate $10

• American Red Cross Relief … text REDCROSS to 90999 to donate $10

• World Relief Corporation of National Association of Evangelicals … text WAVE to 50555 to donate $10

• GlobalGiving … text JAPAN to 50555 to donate $10
