Nonprofits should capitalize on significant events like Earth Day Today marks the day when over a billion people in 192 countries recognize and take action on the unique environmental challenges of our time. Activists and volunteers around the world are planting trees, organizing demonstrations, and cleaning up their communities to honor our Mother Earth. Imagine if you could find ways to harness the power of these types of significant events to increase the level of awareness and activation for your cause?

Keep Trees Where They Belong, Go Mobile!

describe the imageI recently stumbled upon a website called 41 pounds. For those unfamiliar with the site, it is not devoted to a 6-week weight loss program, but a calling for people to sign up in an effort to eliminate 85-90% of their junk mail per year. Simply put, paperless is in.

The most popular item on Amazon, the Kindle, and mGive have two things in common; they are immediate and paperless. Finding environmentally friendly solutions is on the forefront of many campaigns ranging from personal initiative to national awareness. mGive equips an organization with the unique ability to capture supporters' information, collect donations, and communicate with constituents without using a single piece of paper.

Earth Day, April 22, is a perfect opportunity to kick off any mobile campaign! All of our 500 nonprofit clients are engaging their supporters while keeping trees right where they belong. Decrease your environmental footprint while increasing donations and support by eliminating the need for direct mail, checks, and clumsy information forms.

It’s my passion and job to work with you and your organization to mobilize your efforts and mission. Get my contact info by texting CONNOR to 50555 or call me today to get started 866.720.3350 x18.
