Mobile Text Donations for Non-Profit Organizations

Ummmm.... this seems naughty
I received this nice email from James Eberhard, Co-Founder & Chairman of www.MGive.com, which bills itself as "the easiest way to raise money for your cause." I am glad that he caught the intent behind my previous post.

I’m the CEO over at Mobile Accord, a mobile technology provider to NPOs. I’ve got your blog in my reader, and I really enjoy your posts, especially the one on the "f" word, that was great.

I’m sending you a quick note today because we are launching mGive.com, a first of its kind service enabling NPOs to create and launch text message donation campaigns. We have worked with The ASPCA, Amnesty International, Alicia Key’s organization- Keep a Child Alive, and many others to raise thousands of dollars in donations.

I think your blog audience would be interested in learning about our service, as it allows non-profits to collect donations from the majority of the nation’s 250 million mobile phone users.

As you may know 80% of Americans carry a cell phone and now they can use the mobile phone to support their favorite cause by having a non-taxable donation added to their phone bill.

During this year’s SuperBowl, Mobile Accord worked with the United Way to launch a commercial proving out the concept of mobile donations with stellar success. You can view the SuperBowl commercial here- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b38idebP4ag

I would very much like to hear your feedback and any feedback that your readers may have. More information on mGive can be found at mGive.com
Be careful when you email me: cut and paste is often far too easy for me to resist.
