ValuText, recently featured in The New York Times and Forbes, is a mobile discount program that sends real-time offers via text message to opted-in users when they are at and ONLY when they are at) a participating shopping center. The program eliminates the need to activate an application or print a coupon, allowing for quick, convenient and easy redemption when they are most relevant—when you are shopping at your local center.

27 shopping centers in 16 communities (see list below) are the first shopping centers in the country to have this cutting-edge program and we want to celebrate its launch with a community service initiative that will award a nonprofit group a $10,000 donation.

How can groups make $10,000? The goal is to generate 30,000 new ValuText members by May 31, 2012. We are looking for community ambassadors for the ValuText program to help build our membership base, simply by spreading the word about ValuText through email, social media, meetings, events, word-of-mouth, enrolling members, etc.

The first 10 participating groups to reach 1,000 users will receive a $1,000 donation and the group that generates the most users (minimum of 10,000) by February 17, 2012 will receive a $10,000 donation!

If you are interested in participating in the ValuText community service program, please contact Lisa Wieting at 303-839-1415 or lisa@cohnmarketing.com.
