As I'm sure everyone knows, easyMobile is closing on the 13th December, and any promotional credit you've earned will be lost at that point, and plenty of us have a LOT of that.
But there's a way to make good use of it by donating it to charity via premium SMS. There's a catch though - many of the charity premium SMS numbers can't be used on an easyMobile account unless you've got autotop up activated, which most people won't have.
But there are a few charities that do work:
DOG to 84858 - £3 dogs for the disabled
SANDS to 84858 - £3 http://www.fundraisingforsands.org/text.htm
- supporting parents who have lost babies
TTWA to 84858 - £3 woman's aid for women/children affected by domestic violence
NSE to 84858 - £3 http://www.epilepsynse.org.uk/
- finding a cure for epilepsy
CVOC to 84858 - £3 child victims of crime
DOW to 84858 - £3 The Down Syndrom Education trust
RHI to 84858 - £3 Save the rhino
Remember when calculating how many text messages to send, you have to factor in the cost of the text message (about 10p) as well as the £3!
Please post below if you find others that do work, but be careful - you can only know if it's worked by logging into your easymobile account and CHECKING THAT THE FULL AMOUNT HAS BEEN DEDUCTED FROM YOUR BILL - even the ones that don't work will give you a nice text message back saying 'thank you for your donation', but will only charge you ~10p and the charity won't get the money.
(If you've got non-promotional credit, you can get that refunded to you by closing your account.)
It's for a great cause, so please vote this hot people! :-D
84858 BREAST - £3 Breast Cancer Research
84858 HHIV - £3 Hope HIV charity work in Africa
