The Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington, DC is almost here. The event has been celebrated for over 90 years, and the bloom is the most popular time of the year to visit DC.

In the past the event has been supported by sponsors, but this year – and for the first time – the event’s organizers are turning to crowdfunding to try and cover some of the costs of holding this annual event.

We need your support now more than ever. Hopefully, you associate the National Cherry Blossom Festival with wonderful memories – celebrating with family members, marking a milestone, or taking in the beauty and energy of the new season.

A campaign built upon technology from MobileCause is encouraging $10 tax-deductible donations via mobile phone by texting CHERRY to 80888. Backers can also visit this page and donate any amount they desire.
