OpenMarket to Power Mobile Donations for Sport Relief

Sport ReliefOpenMarket is providing a custom-built platform to be used during the Comic Relief sports fundraising appeal to enable people to donate via SMS.

OpenMarket is giving Sports Relief four different SMS shortcodes for people to be able to donate different amounts of cash to the charity. Supporters can text FIVE to 70510 to donate £5 and are charged at the standard network rate for the message.

OpenMarket already takes SMS donations for Children in Need and the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC), which used SMS to fundraise for the Philippines Typhoon Appeal.
