Communication Overtones: Red Cross Uses Social Media Tools to Spread the Word, Deliver Aid and Raise Money for California Fires

This is cool – and SO EASY!  I just sent an SMS message of "GIVE" to 24357, as Kami suggested.

And then I got a warm and fuzzy feeling that makes me want to purr.

Jump in – it’s only $5.00!

# Donate via SMS: You can donate $5 to the Red Cross Disaster fund by texting the word GIVE to 2HELP (24357). The donations will appear on your monthly bill or be debited from prepaid account balances. Participating carriers include AT&T Mobility, Alltel, Boost Mobile, Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon Wireless, and SunCom, with VeriSign powering the intelligent messaging infrastructure. Note: You can check the veracity of this statement by reading about it on the official Red Cross blog for the California fires

# Steal this post and put it up on your own blog (no credit necessary). There is nothing like viral word of mouth to make this campaign a success and to help support the people that have lost so much to this fire.
