The best text you’ll send all year!

Published by , on Dec 6, 2013

Our cellphones have evolved to do some pretty amazing things for us; from helping us navigate to our destination of choice to telling us where we should eat, they almost do it all. This holiday, why not use your cellphone to do something good for others? As part of our 12 Days of Holiday Cheer  we’re asking our friends to help us #SpreadCheer by texting HEALTH to 50555 and donating $10 to Children’s Hospital Foundation. It’s a text you won’t regret!Why text-to-donate? At Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU (CHoR), we work year round to bring as much cheer as possible to our patients and their families. This holiday season, we’re hoping Richmond will join us and help us spread as much cheer as the North Pole!How can you #SpreadCheer? We need our cheer-o-meter to reach 1,200 acts of cheer in order to spread as much cheer as the North Pole! You can participate by:

  1. Action: Telling us in six words on Facebook how you plan to #SpreadCheer this yearDonation: Texting HEALTH to 50555 to donate $10 to help children in the hospital
  2. Holiday Gift: Give the gift of giving by texting-to-donate on behalf of a friend and letting them know by sharing this gift image on their Facebook profile or by printing this gift tag and inserting it in a card, present or stocking!

On the 12th day of Holiday Cheer the staff and patients at CHoR plan to #SpreadCheer with a surprise of their own (you may remember last year’s video)! But the movement to #SpreadCheer doesn’t end here, our goal is to spread as much cheer as possible to help us kick off the New Year and reach our goal by December 31, 2013.What text message could be more meaningful than one that helps #SpreadCheer all year round? Approved Disclaimer:$10.00 donation to Children’s Hospital & Healthcare Services Foundation.
