Bellevue, Washington — November 19, 2018 — Tis the giving season – and T-Mobile wants to help everyone get into the spirit this Giving Tuesday – on us! Today, T-Mobile (NASDAQ: TMUS) announced it will make more than $2 million available to customers, fans and employees who want an opportunity to do some #GivingOnUs!
It’s simple and no strings attached! On Giving Tuesday, November 27th, here’s how it will work:
- T-Mobile Customers: Through the T-Mobile Tuesday app, every customer can give 10 meals* (on us!) to Feeding America®. Customers will also get the chance to win the opportunity to have T-Mobile donate up to $25, $100 or even $500 –to their favorite charity. **
- Everyone: Every time anyone tweets with the #GivingOnUs hashtag, T-Mobile will give 10 meals* to Feeding America. In total, via Twitter and the T-Mobile Tuesday app, up to 10 million meals ($1 million) will be donated to Feeding America!
- T-Mobile Employees: The T-Mobile Foundation will deposit at least $27 in every T-Mobile employee’s Giving Account, which they can direct to any eligible charity of their choice.
“We love giving back during the holiday season and this Giving Tuesday we want our customers, fans and employees to do their #GivingOnUs!” said John Legere, CEO of T-Mobile. “We’re making it easy. We’re putting more than $2M in their hands and giving them the opportunity to donate to some amazing organizations that will make a huge difference in our communities.”
The Un-carrier’s commitment to charitable giving goes far beyond just one day. So far in 2018, T-Mobile has donated more than $8 million and offered more than 34,000 volunteer hours to organizations that support youth, veterans, the environment, disaster recovery, ending hunger in America and more.
