Text To Give Campaign

At the end of the film there will be a Call to Action

The audience will be asked to engage to help fund and select the first publicly funded Grameen America branch in the country. 

Text the word “AMERICA” to  “85944

First, audience members will be asked to support Grameen America through mobile giving.
By sending a text message to a set number, participants can give $10 in seconds, and all funds will be directed to Grameen America. Funds will also be collected online at our campaign website and on our Facebook page.

Note:   A one‐time donation of $10 will be billed to your mobile phone bill.  Messaging & data rates may apply. Donations are collected for Grameen America a 501(c)(3) by mobilecause.com. Reply STOP to 85944 to stop. Reply HELP to 85944 for help. For terms, see www.igfn.org/t.

Second, in an unprecedented online contest, the members of the audience will have the opportunity to vote for which of four candidate cities: Chicago, Los Angeles, Washington, D.C., and Atlanta will host the next Grameen America branch.

Working with our partner organizations in each city, we will feature personal stories and data about poverty and financial stability from each of our candidate cities, giving our voters the information they need to make their voting decision.

You can vote once a week throughout the month of April.
At the end of April, we will announce our winner, and all funds raised around the launch will be set aside for use in that new Grameen America city.
Both efforts will be supported by our publicity team and by a team of celebrity volunteers who will include these calls to action in social media activity. This promotional activity will begin on March 31 and continue until the winning city is announced.
