The Salvation Army is launching a national text messaging donation program Saturday in hopes of using this new medium to reach more donors.
Donors can text the word HOPE to 45678 from most Canadian mobile phones to make a $5.00 contribution to the Salvation Army’s Christmas Campaign. Money raised will directly support the more than 1.5 million people the Salvation Army serves year-round.
The program officially launches at the Santa Shuffle Runs across the country on Saturday, December 5 and will continue throughout the Christmas season, giving donors a cash-free, easy and secure way to make donations to the Christmas Campaign.
Winnipeg’s Santa Shuffle will be at 10 a.m. at the Children’s Museum located at The Forks.
