By including the http://HelpSean.mobi link in our emails, Twitter feeds, Facebook posts, and text broadcasts, our messages are now equipped with an instantaneous response method. People can give from the train, a restaurant, the park… wherever.
Brookline, MA (PRWEB) October 5, 2010
Today, the Sean Bielat for Congress campaign announced a new way for supporters to contribute from their cell phones. HelpSean.mobi is a mobile fund raising platform called mobileDonor designed by CharityCall. It's a simple, safe, and secure way for supporters to make contributions immediately.
“We are excited to be using the mobileDonor platform to help ensure victory over Barney Frank this November,” said campaign manager Brian Phillips. “Since a large portion of our campaign communication messages are now being received over web enabled smart phones, it only makes sense to enable financial supporters to respond immediately from their devices.”
Sean Bielat for Congress is the first congressional campaign to implement this brand new technology which hosts a client branded giving app on the mobile web at a universally accessible .mobi web address, http://HelpSean.mobi, and handles the transaction via PayPal’s secure mobile payments system.
“Supporters don’t have to download any applications in advance. It works the same way on every phone,” explains CharityCall founder and President, Bob Jones. “I-phone users, Android, Blackberry, Palm, or any other web enabled device will have the same giving experience, just go to http://www.HelpSean.mobi on your mobile browser.”
“mobileDonor allows us to extend our web based donor engagement strategy from the part time world of the desktop to the always on world of the mobile phone,” adds Phillips, “by including the http://HelpSean.mobi link in our emails, Twitter feeds, Facebook posts, and text broadcasts, our messages are now equipped with an instantaneous response method. People can give from the train, a restaurant, the park… wherever.”
“Also,” he continues, “as our Twitter Re-Tweet rank has recently ascended into the top 1% of all tweets, we look for http://HelpSean.mobi to be a significant added convenience for all the new mobile supporters we’re finding on twitter who want to help Sean retire Barney Frank in November.”
“The giving experience for contributions under $200 is fast, simple, and elegant; we’re very proud of it,” says Fred Emmer, CharityCall Vice President of Marketing. “A $100 mobile gift can be made with as few as seven key strokes. But for gifts of $200 or more the giving experience has additional steps to accommodate Federal Election Commission data collection requirements.” mobileDonor is the first platform which fulfils these requirements on an immediately and universally accessible mobile platform.
