Open, Child’s i & Mobilise

Friday, December 14th, 2012

A few months ago Kirsty from Child’s i Foundation tweeted me and asked if I would meet her and Lucy to talk about mobile giving. If you know me, you know I like to talk, so I went along.


My previous experience of Child’s i had always ended with me crying. This film gets shown a lot at conferences. Pretty much every time I see it, I cry. So I was really looking forward to talking to them.



Meeting them was brilliant – one of those meetings where you know instantly that you would be really disappointed if you didn’t end up working together. So, to cut a long blog post short we’re really chuffed to announce that we are. We’re helping Child’s i develop a mobile giving strategy based around Mobilise, our SMS based regular giving platform.


Child’s i do great things online and have built a really loyal group of supporters and volunteers around their social media presence – so one of the first things we want to do is put Mobilise into their Facebook page and onto their web site.


Something a bit like this…



To give £3 a month to Child’s i enter your mobile number in the box above (UK only) and hit ‘Set up £3 monthly gift’. This will send an SMS to your phone. Reply YES to that SMS and your gift will be set up instantly and your first £3 will be taken.


Try it, it really is that simple.

The legal bit. You can Stop at anytime by replying STOP. If for whatever reason you don’t want to give, reply SKIP to your monthly text and you will skip a payment.
