Bright by Text is a new educational text-messaging service from Bright by Three that sends weekly text messages targeted to the age and developmental stage of a child age 0-3.
By simply texting the keyword “BRIGHT” to 444999, parents and caregivers can sign up for weekly tips, tools and resources to support healthy child development.
Bright by Text messages include:
- Learning games to help develop physical and cognitive skills
- Health, nutrition and wellness tips
- Tools to stimulate language and early literacy
- Info on on child development
- Local parenting resources
Each Bright by Text message links to a mobile-friendly landing page with more information.
By the end of March, BB3 will launch Bright by Text in Spanish, and parents can text “BRILLANTE” to 444999 to receive Spanish-language messages.
BB3 is also working to add more English-language messages to the system. By mid-April we will add a health and wellness campaign. Bright by Text messages currently come every 10 days; the goal is to send between 1 and 2 messages each week.
