Donate by TEXT

You can now text a donation to RICE.

JustTextGiving by Vodafone lets charities collect donations by text using a unique code. You don’t even have to be a Vodafone customer to raise money or donate. All text donations are free, and won't come out of any inclusive texts you have as part of your price plan – even if you're not with Vodafone. You just pay the cost of your donation.

When you make a text donation, it'll either be deducted from your mobile phone credit or added to your mobile phone bill – and you won't pay any VAT on your donation.

Every penny you donate using JustTextGiving by Vodafone goes to RICE. And if you add Gift Aid, we get even more money by reclaiming any tax you've already paid on the amount you give. You can donate in quantities of £1; £2; £3; £4; £5; £10.

All you need to do is:

  • Text RICE02 followed by the amount you wish to donate to 70070 – for example: RICE02 £10
  • Reply to our Gift Aid text – adding Gift Aid means the charity can claim an extra 25%

JustTextGiving by Vodafone is supported by the Vodafone Foundation (registered charity 1089625).
