Technology pioneered after the devastating earthquake in Haiti to "text" donations via one's own cell phone bill, has been extended to those wishing to support the nation's biggest youth development organization -- 4-H.
During April, you can make a $10 donation to 4-H by texting CLOVER to 50555.
Each donation counts as a single vote, and the state 4-H organization receiving the most contributions through the texting campaign or by giving online at www.4-H.org, will receive an additional $5,000 -- from campaign sponsor J.C. Penney.
Participating wireless carriers include: AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint and Nextel.
The one-time donation of $10 will be added to your mobile phone bill, or deducted from your pre-paid balance.
