Mobile Giving

***I’m going to need a new Blog just for all the Buzz about Mobile Giving and Texting to Donate! I was just on Twitter and saw the Tweet from @BuzzThreeSixty about “Mobile and Social” crashing together today with Motorola’s new Android OS and MotoBlur!  (http://www.buzz-360.com/blog/?p=81)

After reading that Post, I checked out the following Post:

There’s a lot of hype surrounding Virgin Mobile’s Free Festival. The festival features acts like Blink 182, Taking Back Sunday, Weezer, Franz Ferninand and more. The music festival, taking place on August 30th in Columbia, MD, is giving away every ticket for free. Why? The times are tough and Virgin Mobile believes that you deserve a free concert. I am not opposed to this. But in the midst of all this excitement regarding the event, I feel like one of the really great features is getting drowned out among the oncoming free, great music: By texting “FreeFest” to 20222 you can donate $5 to The RE*Generation, a charity that combats youth homelessness.

What does MotoBlur and Mobile Giving have to do with JointCare??? Nothing! Unless one of our favorite charities – The Arthritis Foundation – can benefit from Text Giving! Just thought I’d share something that is cutting edge, and likely to be the topic of conversation just about everywhere!
