The Obama campaign has set up a text-to-donate platform that allows contributors to text the word "GIVE" to 62262.
"Accepting small donations by text message will help us engage even more grassroots supporters who want to play a role by donating whatever they can afford to the campaign – and get the President re-elected in November," said Obama campaign manager Jim Messina.
Those wishing to donate can text “GIVE” to 62262. The service is available for those who have cell phone service with Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile and U.S. Cellular. AT&T customers will soon be able to use the feature.
The donations, which are capped at $50, will be charged via cellphone bill.
