MobileCause Partners with Jewish Federation of Greater Houston
Aug 02, 2011 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
MobileCause, a provider in the U.S. for mobile communication, CRM and fundraising services, announced that it has partnered with the Jewish Federation of Greater Houston to raise donations for The HJCF Berry Family Fund for Orphans.
Three weeks ago, the Company said a tragic car accident took the lives of Josh and Robin Berry leaving their three children, ages 9, 8 and 6 severely injured, and the older two paralyzed from the waist down. In response to this tragic accident, Houston Jewish Community Foundation established The HJCF Berry Family Fund for Orphans, which will benefit individual children with urgent financial needs who are orphans due to the loss of their parents from catastrophic incidents, and who currently reside or previously resided in the Greater Houston area, with preference being given to the three Berry children. MobileCause is facilitating a quick and efficient way for anyone with a cell phone to donate to The HJCF Berry Family Fund for Orphans.
According to a release, MobileCause and the Jewish Federation of Greater Houston, organized a "text2give" campaign allowing people to make a carrier billed micro-donation of $10 by texting the word "Berry" to 85944 via mobile phone. The money collected will be distributed directly to The HJCF Berry Family Fund for Orphans.
"We were immediately drawn to this family when we heard about the accident and contacted our friends at the Jewish Federation to see if they'd be willing to work with us to help those kids," said MobileCause CEO Douglas Plank. "We know people want to help, and we know they're also very busy. Our company is simply the vehicle that makes it easy to make a donation all you need is your cell phone."
