Marcus Brigstocke hosted the event at the Hammersmith Apollo, one of London’s major live entertainment venues, during which the comedians appealed to the audience to show their support by texting a donation via an instaGiv provided KEYWORD to a SHORTCODE text number. The charity was also able to see which comedian had the greatest effect on the audience as our reporting system gave live feedback as the text donations were coming in. Donations were still coming in after the event which just goes to show the power of text messaging.
The event organiser Georgie Middleditch was kind enough to send this testimonial after the event:
“We have recently set up an I-Commit package with instaGiv. We have been wanting to do this for a while but have not found a suitable service provider. The instaGiv team were so helpful guiding even the most technically illiterate person through the steps – they were so patient! We have just had a comedy night at the Hammersmith Apollo attended by 2,500 people. It was a great way to launch our campaign! The online dashboard is ideal, updating donations every 10 seconds so we could monitor the results closely. The team at instaGiv are great, its so easy to set up and they can answer any questions immediately! I would highly recommend their products regardless of the size of your organisation, its the perfect way to get people giving – there is something for everyone!”
The donations sent that evening were part of our i-Commit package, which offers charities the opportunity to take Regular Donations through their supporters mobile phone, doing away with the need to get people to fill in forms for Direct Debit Mandates, or collect credit card details for inputting later. A text takes a matter of seconds to do, and each month our automated systems take care of the donation, making sure that your compliant, informative and also Gift Aid ready.
