Cell phones are the most powerful communication tool because “they are almost completely spam free, they’re personal, and nearly every message gets read.”
Jed Alpert is a mobile activist who spreads information, raises money and has seen political and social change all through cell phone technology.
“The cell phone is particularly effective at engaging young people. I use geographic data to text teens about nearby volunteer opportunities”.
He uses well-known celebrities like Britney Spears to read messages for the sake of an activity.
In addition, donation through text messaging is revolutionary in charity. Cell phones can activate “the population who wouldn’t otherwise be giving” and be cool.
