Wednesday, October 31, 2012 - 6:10pm

Denver, October 31, 2012 /3BL Media/The mGive Foundation announced today that it is powering several text campaigns raising funds for victims of Hurricane Sandy.

“The main focus is to make sure that everyone is safe,” said Jenifer Snyder, executive director of The mGive Foundation.  “Once that is established, some nonprofits may decide to initialize a mobile campaign-we are ready for nonprofits to turn to us to get their text donation campaigns up and running as soon as possible.”

Below are text donation campaigns that are currently operational to help raise funds for storm victims:

·        Text REDCROSS to 90999 to give $10 to American Red Cross

·        Text SANDY to 80088 to give $10 to Global Giving

·        Text AID to 50555 to give $10 to Operation USA

·        Text RESPOND to 50555 to give $10 to Church World Service

·        Text CONVOY to 50555 to give $10 to Convoy of Hope

·        Text BLESS to 50555 to give $10 to Operation Blessing International

In order to protect all parties against fraud, The mGive Foundation ensures mobile campaigns are legitimate sources to text.  Additionally, by working closely with U.S. wireless carriers to process donations, 100 percent of the proceeds go directly to the nonprofit organizations. 

The mGive Foundation is the leader in coordinating text-to-give campaigns, processing 85% of all mobile donations, not just for disasters.  Experience shows that the bulk of donations will be made after more complete damage assessment announcements are made and reports of the full scope and size of the disaster are confirmed.

Organizations interested in launching mobile donation campaigns for relief efforts can contact mGive at 866.720.3350 to get started.
