With this token of appreciation, txtMovies is saying ‘thank you’ to volunteers and providing fun, memorable experiences that volunteers can enjoy while relaxing or spending time with their families over the holidays.”

txtMovies, a company that specializes in delivering Redbox and Amazon Instant Video rentals via text message and email, is thanking individuals who volunteer this holiday season.

In the upcoming weeks, txtMovies will be scanning Twitter and rewarding individuals who are sharing their time and energy through volunteer experiences. The company encourages Twitter users to share their volunteer activities with the hashtag #givingback. txtMovies will randomly choose individuals to thank with a free Redbox movie code which will be sent via twitter direct message (DM).

According to the Corporation for National and Community Service, “62.6 million Americans volunteered nearly 7.7 billion hours” in 2013. The estimated value of this volunteer service is nearly $173 billion.

“Volunteerism is critically important and there are many wonderful people who will be serving others this holiday season,” said Blaine Ung, txtMovies founder. “With this token of appreciation, txtMovies is saying ‘thank you’ to volunteers and providing fun, memorable experiences that volunteers can enjoy while relaxing or spending time with their families over the holidays.”

txtMovies enables organizations to easily send the gift of a movie rental for as little as $2.49 per movie.

"We are excited about the opportunity to use txtMovies to reward our Volunteers of the Month and stand-out individuals with a little something extra,” said Jeannie Saudi, Volunteer Coordinator, City of San Antonio. "It will be nice to surprise them with a free movie for going above and beyond our expectations, which they do every day. And, this reward program definitely fits our budget!"
