via Slate Magazine by Sandy Stonesifer on 1/27/10Dear Sandy,I've seen more organizations request donations via text message lately, especially after the earthquake in Haiti. Is this a cost-effective way to donate? How does the overhead charged by phone companies compare with credit card donations or the trouble of processing checks? Are there any downsides?
