USA - Donations to charity by mobile phone users sees massive growth

[prnewswire] Following the disaster in Haiti, mobile donation programs are seeing a dramatic increase in usage. Donations via text message continue to be popular and now donations via voice calls to Mobile Dialing Codes (MDCs) are seeing tremendous growth due to their ease of use and convenience. Single Touch Systems (OTC Bulletin Board: SITO) provides the platform for mobile giving via Charity Call™, where AT&T subscribers dial #505 and select a charity or cause of their choice and simply make a one-time donation of $25. Callers can select the cause 'International Humanitarian Relief' to make a donation.

"Single Touch creates programs that make charitable giving via the mobile phone as easy as making a phone call. Single Touch is thankful that we're able to help the families by using our MDC technology to make it easier to donate, just dial #505 to help now," said Anthony Macaluso, CEO of Single Touch Systems. Single Touch has won industry awards and recognition for its innovation and programs across a variety of industries.
