Once a charity has signed up to the service then it simply promotes a donation keyword and short code telephone number to its prospective supporters. Donors opt in to giving, either regular or one-off donations, by sending a single text message to the short code incorporating the charity keyword. They then receive regular text messages from their charity, which are billed to the donors mobile phone account.Graham Burrough at Smstextgiving said: “Smstextgiving’s platform not only allows charities to extend their donation collection capabilities, but also allows each charity to develop and maintain closer personal relationships with their supporters. “We are now looking forward to working closely with Fruitful Fundraising to increase the number of charities using the service and to deliver additional revenues to help our charities in the valuable work they undertake.” Howard Lake | 15 July 2003 | News Smstextgiving partners with Fruitful Fundraising About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

The user is then given personalised feedback to help them adapt and, if necessary, to reduce their consumption patterns.The programme is self-guided, and requires no face-to-face contact time with a counsellor or administrator. As it is offered online, the e-PUB can provide quick, confidential feedback in multiple settings. This also allows a student to complete a personal ‘check-up’ on multiple occasions to track changes in use and risk behaviour.e-PUB has already been implemented with great success in a number of other Irish Third Level institutions, including UCC and NUIG.Speaking on behalf of the MIC, UL and LIT student unions, Caoimhe Guinnane said she hoped the e-PUB programme would help students become more aware of their alcohol consumption.“This programme will be a tool to anonymously encourage students to seek help via the information of local services provided if necessary,” the MIC student union vice-president added.According to recent figures, 2.48 million people in Ireland drink with at least 75 per cent of all alcohol consumed as part of a binge drinking session. Those aged 18-24 years are most likely to have a harmful drinking pattern.Elaine Griffin, project worker with the Mid West Third Level Drug and Alcohol Prevention Initiative, believes the e-PUB programme will be complemented in the three Limerick institutions with a sustained awareness campaign using social media and traditional communication channels, in addition to environmental strategies that are relevant to each individual institution.by Alan [email protected]last_img read more
