Cingular Wireless + Text Messaging = Tsunami Relief
Cingular is giving all of its customers with text message service the ability to donate to the tsunami relief in South Asia and East Africa.
Over the next week or so, Cingular cusomers will receive a text message from Cingular, telling them how they can donate. By replying to the text message, customers can choose which of three charities they'd like to contribute to (Red Cross, UNICEF and Save the Children). Customers can also choose to donate $0.99 or $1.99, the same cost of a ring tone. All of the money will go to the charities.
Read about the program here.
I have a Cingular phone. I'll let you know when I get the message.
