Change a Life With a Text Message

DoSomething.org teams up with Kiva for 25,000 Women campaign.

The nonprofit DoSomething.org has teamed up with crowd-funding site Kiva to create a campaign called 25,000 Women that will donate $25 to a female entrepreneur in the developing world when you send a text. Here’s how it works: participants text WOMAN to 38383, and then answer a series of questions about scenarios that women are faced with every day in Pakistan, Mongolia, Kenya, El Salvador, and the Philippines. After the questions, 25,000 Women will donate $25 to one of 25,000 female entrepreneur in need. The campaign is aimed especially at young people, and increasing their participation in philanthropy—especially given that the average teen sends more than 3,000 texts a month.
