Textbanking (also called “peer-to-peer texting”) is an innovative, effective, flexible, fun way to reach people, sending texts from your computer or other device — it does not use your cell phone’s texting plan! You can send 100-500 texts in a matter of minutes from the comfort of your home (or wherever you have internet access!).
