The campaign was launched by the Central Committee of the Vietnam Red Cross Society and the National Humanitarian Portal 1400 in mid-December 2019. It is considered as a meaningful program, which mobilized organizations and individuals in the community to support disadvantaged people on the occasion of the Tet (Lunar New Year) festival.  It also demonstrates the good tradition of the Vietnamese people.

Accordingly, the Department of Mass Mobilization asked relevant units to disseminate information to troops and employees and call on them to actively respond to the campaign by texting TET to 1409 from now to February 7. Each successfully-sent message is equal to a donation of VND 20,000 to the fund for people in need.
