Giving from the comfort of your couch

Emmaus UK mobile phone text giving 140401crop

Thanks to text giving, you can now donate to Emmaus without even leaving the comfort of your couch.

Never has it been so simple to change the life of a person who has experienced homelessness, as you can now donate to Emmaus using your mobile phone. 

Simply text EMUK14 and £1, £2, £3, £4, £5 or £10 to 70070, and you will receive a thank you text acknowledging your donation. Your donation amount will be added to your next phone bill.

Texting a donation to us will not cost you anything other than the amount you choose to give, though we will ask if you would consider adding Gift Aid, as this allows us to reclaim basic rate tax on your gift.

Text donations can only be made within the UK on a UK mobile phone network and cannot be refunded as it isn't possible for JustGiving to add credit back onto a mobile phone bill.

JustGiving will never record your mobile phone number so it cannot be passed on to the charity or any third parties.

You can also donate in other ways - or get in touch to find out how you could raise money for us by taking part in an event, on 0300 303 7555. 

You must be aged 14 or over to join the SMS network. Under 18's, please ask the bill-payer's permission before joining and provide a date of birth in the format: DD/MM/YYYY. Under 18's will not be asked for financial donations.
