Xmas charity giving by text

Posted by Admin on December 18, 2008

Nuance, the company behind T9 text input, has provided some ideas for you if you’d like to give some money to charity this Xmas. There are a number of charities that use text messaging as a way to raise money, here are some examples of how you can give:

Women’s Aid

To donate £3 to Women’s Aid simply text the word “TTWA” to 84858. Messages charged at standard rate.

Sight Savers

To make a one-off donation to Sight Savers, simply text the words “SIGHT ONCE” to the number 87070. For each text, your network provider will charge £1.50 to your next bill. From this charge, Sight Savers will be given £1 to help support its work in the developing world.

Breast Cancer Care

Text “PINK” to 83338 to download your very own pink ribbon and make a valuable £1.50 donation to Breast Cancer Care, plus the usual cost of a text message.

Thanks Nuance.
