What Happened After We Launched the Text HAITI Campaign

Posted by Angela Whaley on Jan 12, 2019 1:32:44 PM

Remembering the Haiti earthquake 9 years later.

We've come a long way, but there is still a long road ahead. I want to share our experience working on the Text HAITI relief campaigns, and share what we have learned then and now. 

It was a Tuesday afternoon, a little after 5:30pm on January 12, 2010 in Denver. I was heading out of the office when I saw our Operations Manager.

“Hey! What are you still doing here?” I asked.

“I just got a call from Jimmy. I guess there was an earthquake in Haiti. I’m going to spin up a keyword real quick then I’m out of here” he replied.

Luckily for Josephe, and all of us, the human spirit is resilient.

April is Distracted Driving Month

Posted by mGive Team on Apr 27, 2018 2:45:00 PM

att_icw_logoYou’re cruising along the freeway at 60 mph and you can’t stand that stupid song on the radio another second. The A/C is too high. Your kid is throwing crumbs at the baby. Your phone rings.

Any of these things can distract you while you’re driving. You think you need to look away from the road for just a quick second, and bam. It’s like you’ve just gone a block and half while staring at the clouds.

When we think of distracted driving, the first thing that comes to mind is a teen with a cell phone sending just that one little text, but anything that takes your eyes and your mind off the road is a distraction, and it’s super dangerous.
