Donating by mobiles

MOBILE providers in Ireland have joined forces to provide a new text donation facility for charities.

The six mobile providers -- Vodafone, O2, Three, Meteor, Tesco Mobile and eMobile -- have launched the donation service that ensures 100pc of the money raised goes directly to the charity.

Donors can now send a message with a keyword dedicated to their charity using free-text number 50300.
