If You Want to Join Multiple Organizations:

Note that if you want to join multiple organizations who are using the same short code, you need to text the word CLEAR between your messages to make sure you subscribe to both.  For example, both Advocates for Youth and Greenpeace use the short code 877-877. So to join them both, you would need the following message flow.

You do not need to use the word CLEAR if you are texting organizations on different short codes.
