How You Can Help Support Trusted Hurricane Florence Relief Efforts Through Mobile Giving

Mobile Giving Foundation:

What:  

Mobile giving is the fastest, easiest, and most trusted way to send monetary relief to those affected by Hurricane Florence. Through the Mobile Giving Foundation (MGF) only highly qualified charities with proven track records in emergency relief will benefit from your donation. The donation will appear on your wireless phone bill – no cash or credit card required. MGF collects and distributes donations to vetted charities, will issue the donor a donation tax receipt upon request, and issue public notification of aggregated donation amounts. Wireless operators do not charge for this service to the community.

 
How:

Just by texting a keyword to a designated short code via your wireless phone and confirming with either YES or your ZIP code when requested, a donation of $10 or $25 can be made to aid the people affected by this disaster. You can donate multiple times if you wish to contribute larger amounts. MGF works with U.S. wireless operators to enable a 100% pass-through of funds raised by all mobile campaigns listed in this alert. Your entire donation goes to the designated charity through the MGF with the donation appearing as a charge on your wireless bill. Standard message rates may apply, and MGF will collect a 35-cent successful transaction charge from the beneficiary charity on a post-donation basis to offset costs – about equivalent to a credit card charge and less than the cost of a postage stamp.
