# Text-To-Give (updated)
Control a text based donation drive / paddle raise from this page.
There are two sections to the Text-To-Give page. Each provides the option to select a specific donation item from the auction to be used as the single default item when a person texts donate (or give) to the text messages phone number.
Using the text command donate, only, will make a donation against the default item.
This Donation Item must also have a single set amount to be used this way.
donate text message command requires the "default" Text-To-Give item be configured with a single value, a donor can still pledge a different amount. For example, if
donate pledges $100, using
donate $150 instead would pledge $150 (overriding the configured value of the Donation Item).
If the bidder wants to make a donation against another donation item, or a cash donation, they will need to specify that in their text. See Text Commands for more details.
