Bad News for Chuggers

The Sunday Times is also carrying a story that Just Giving has developed a system with Vodafone to collect donations by SMS text message.  A hundred percent of the charge will go to the charity.

They predict it will cut down the number of chuggers on our streets.

  1. How clever and easy at the same time. And more importantly, it’s good to see 100% of the charge going to charity. Nothing about those administration charges that we always hear about.

    • I posted here that Everything Everywhere make a charge but O2, Vodafone and Virgin don’t.

      I think that O2, Vodafone and Virgin see it as good marketing! And also good ways to keep long-serving customers.

      I wouldn’t be surprised if market research has shown that those who give to charity will stick with their current supplier, unless they really annoy them.
