Denver, CO, September 16, 2013 /3BL Media/ — Water is still rising and parts of Colorado aren’t finished with the rainfall, yet. As damage is being assessed and organizations are diligently working to get services to victims, you can do something to help the destruction flooding through Colorado. Text the word FLOOD to 80108 to give $10 to the mGive Disaster Relief Fund. Donations will be directed to organizations providing services to the affected areas and listed on the website.

“In times of disaster, the fastest way to help victims is through donations and the most immediate way to contribute is with a text donation through your mobile phone,” said Bill Soards, President of AT&T Colorado.  “It’s only four clicks to text a $10 donation that provides services to those who desperately need it.”

According to Emergency Management of the State of Colorado’s Department of Local Affairs, “Financial gifts are the best way to help. Cash allows disaster agencies to purchase exactly what is needed.”  The mGive Foundation has a long-standing reputation of keeping text donation campaigns transparent and efficient with the technology that makes it possible for anyone who has a cell phone to help.

 “mGive set up this text campaign in minutes, with the support of our wireless carrier partners like AT&T. A text donation is the most effective method to help flood victims in Colorado,” said Jenifer Snyder, executive director of The mGive Foundation. “We aren’t helplessly watching the news of flood devastation. We can reach for our mobile phone and make a safe, secure contribution that will help as soon as possible.”

The mGive Foundation is the leader in the text donation industry processing 85 percent of all mobile donations in the U.S. mGive invented the mobile channel for social good and has the technology and expertise to handle the outpouring of text donations during big disasters like the Oklahoma tornado, the bombing at the Boston Marathon, Super Storm Sandy, Haiti and more. mGive also runs hundreds of text campaigns for nonprofits, large and small, that want to mobilize support (volunteer time, money and other resources) in non-disaster situations.

Charges will appear on your wireless bill, or be deducted from your prepaid balance. All purchases must be authorized by account holder. Must be 18 years of age or have parental permission to participate. Message and Data Rates May Apply. Text STOP to 80108 to STOP. Text HELP to 80108 for HELP. Full Terms: Privacy Policy:
