AFFA SMS club

Sherman explains the true benefit of the campaign: "AFFA has dedicated a lot of time and energy to creating awareness about the pandemic of AIDS in Africa and now that we have the public's attention they can respond immediately by texting in donations. It's the sheer convenience of the campaign that will allow us to raise millions of dollars for a worthy cause." Participants will be able to join the AFFA SMS club by texting AFFA to 99416. Members will be able to donate $2.99 or more after joining the club. They will also receive text messages about the progress of the organization and the different events they have planned for fundraising.
