Virginia Zoo Builds Memories with Give by Cell

Virginia Zoo Builds Memories
with Mobile Fundraising

The Virginia Zoo in Norfolk, Virginia has partnered with Give by Cell to implement its Mobile Give fundraising service which allows supporters to make a donation via text to Zoo Farm project. The Zoo Farm is being renovated through Summer 2014, but visitors can still interact with some of the barnyard animals.

“Ongoing improvements to Zoo habitats are an important part of our commitment to providing the highest level of animal care possible for our residents,” said Greg Bockheim, the Zoo’s Director. “The new Zoo Farm will provide a one-of-a-kind interactive, educational experience to all Zoo visitors.”

Supporters can donate $10, with the charge applied to their mobile phone bill, by texting "VAZOO" to 20222*. For more information about Mobile Give, please click here.
