Update: the competition deadline has been extended to 23rd August. Take a couple of hours this weekend and have some fun with a camera and your text code! The sooner you get a video up, the more views it’ll get by the end.
Fundraisers! With JustTextGiving by Vodafone you can now create your very own text code and get people to donate to your fundraising page just by sending a quick text! Best of all, thanks to our friends at Vodafone, charities will receive 100% of donations via text!
To celebrate the launch of JustTextGiving, we are running a creative video competition. Just think of a fun and inventive way of fundraising with your text code. Will you print it out on your running vest? Will you write it on your forehead for a week?! Just watch our video, create a short video response with your idea, and get all your friends and family to view it. The video with the most views by 23rd August will win a £500 donation to their fundraising page and be featured on our blog. Two runners-up (picked by a panel of judges) will win £200 donations too. It could make a huge difference to your charity… and a bit of fun for you!
