On October 13, Dystonia Medical Research Foundation will launch a campaign allowing donors to mGive DMRF to 90999. The foundation works towards finding a cure for Dystonia, a movement disorder that causes the afflicted to suffer from involuntary muscle spasms. Often, muscle contractions caused by the disease are so severe that patients' bodies are forced into repetitive twisting movements or painfully awkward positions. In addition to searching for a cure, DMRF provides support for Dystonia patients and their families as they battle the life altering illness.

The documentary features performances by several popular artists, and will include a call to action urging viewers to make on the spot donations by mGiving RESPOND to 90999.
Safe Blood for Africa has created a new campaign calling supporters to mGive HIV to 90999 in order to help the organization pursue its goal of providing technical assistance to countries that are developing national blood services.
