Verizon Wireless will offer text-to-donate capabilities before, during and after Toby Keith’s Oklahoma Twister Relief Concert, set for July 6 at Gaylord Family Oklahoma Memorial Stadium in Norman, Oklahoma. Supporters can text the keyword REBUILD to 52000 to give an automatic $10 donation to the United Way of Central Oklahoma’s May Tornadoes Relief Fund now until after the show.
“As a proud supporter of Toby Keith’s Oklahoma Twister Relief Concert, Verizon Wireless believes in putting technology and communication to good use that will last well beyond this recovery effort,” Dean Taylor, president for the South Central Region of Verizon Wireless, said. “A text-to-donate program makes the most sense. And, we are hopeful that providing this service will result in significantly more aid for the people who need it most.”
Tickets for the benefit concert went on sale June 21 and have sold out. Artists set to perform to perform include Toby, Garth Brooks, Willie Nelson, Trisha Yearwood, Ronnie Dunn, Mel Tillis, John Anderson and Sammy Hagar.
