JustTextGiving

In the UK, JustTextGiving enables individuals and charities to collect donations via text. Through a partnership between Just Giving, Vodafone UK and the Vodafone Foundation the service allows individuals and charities of any size to leverage the power of mobile giving to raise money for charity.

In 2012, JustTextGiving was awarded Big Society Award for the way it has revolutionised charity giving through text donation.

JustTextGiving is being used by more than 274,500 individual fundraisers and by 24,400 charities. This has helped raise more than £38 million since its inception in May 2011. In August 2014, more than 800,000 text donations, amounting to over £3.7 million were raised using JustTextGiving for the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. 

To donate money, all a user has to do is text a unique code and the amount they want to donate (£1, £2, £3, £4, £5, £10) to 70070. The total amount donated goes to the charity.  Using JustTextGiving, fundraisers and charities alike can benefit from the power of mobile with 100% of donations going to where it’s needed most.  You don’t even have to be a Vodafone customer to raise money or donate.
