CARY, NC, November 28, 2010—In an effort to further interact with constituents and donors, international Christian media organization TWR has teamed with Los Angeles-based MobileCause and the Mobile Giving Foundation. People now have the opportunity to access a variety of convenient TWR-related mobile communication and giving options.
“In addition to keeping people on-the-go updated on ministry events, we now offer these busy individuals the ability to donate any amount to TWR using their cell phones,” says TWR Donor Services Director Bob Hall.
MobileCause is the leading Internet service for mobile donor engagement and fundraising. The company provides mobile tools to nationally recognized nonprofit organizations such as Back to the Bible, Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, Gospel for Asia and numerous others.
Here’s how individuals can interact with TWR when they are on the go:
• Donate any amount using a cell phone (charged to a credit card) by texting: TWR followed by a space and the amount they’d like to donate to 27138
For example, text: TWR 35 to donate $35
The donation will be applied to where it is needed most. Individuals will receive an automated call from a fulfillment center and will be able to charge that amount to a credit card.
• Donate $10.00 via cell phone (charged to their cell phone bill) by texting: TWR to 85944
A one-time donation of $10 will be added to the person’s mobile phone bill or deducted from their prepaid balance. The donation will be applied to the area of greatest need. Standard messaging and data rates may apply.
All charges are billed by and payable to the individual’s mobile service provider, and the service is available on most carriers. Donations are collected for the benefit of TWR by the Mobile Giving Foundation and subject to the terms found here.
Additionally, a free, downloadable TWR MobileCause iPhone application is available at www.twr.org/mobilecause. Individuals may also sign up for periodic text message alerts from TWR on our homepage.
