LWOB has gone "mobile" with ways to make it easier for you to support our rule of law work around the world. In December 2013 LWOB launched mobile texting support. Simply text LWOB to 41444 on your mobile for a screen where you can input your credit card information. In February 2014, we expect to have functionality that will accept $5-10 donations via text that will be charged to your mobile phone bill.
You can also obtain at no cost, a VISA credit card that donations a portion of your expenditures to LWOB. Every time you use your LWOB branded credit card to make a purchase and the person at the register, to whom you present the card, kindly asks...Lawyers Without Borders...is that like Doctors Without Borders? "Yes, in a way it is" we answer--While we have no affiliation whatsoever with the wonderful doctors' group, LWOB is all about lawyers donating their time and services to make a difference in the world. To make it better, for you, me, everyone.
You can make a difference at LWOB every day without clicking on that Donate Now Button by applying for the LWOB VISA credit card. LWOB receives $50 with each approved application (upon first use of the card) and a percentage of all purchases to the card.
But, what we didn't realize is how using an LWOB credit card can reach people you encounter in everyday life. You can "spread the word" about LWOB and how we are trying to make a difference around the world. Letting people know who we are and what we do, well, that's half the job. Presenting your LWOB branded credit card makes that happen.
