Mobile service with a cause

This is the text from an email I received:

Join the mobile phone company that's fighting to protect a woman's right to choose.

Have you ever thought about whether your mobile phone company supports right-wing politicians? You might be surprised at the answer.

Not only was AT&T a two-time maximum contributor to George W. Bush, it supported right-wing extremists like Senators Inhofe and Coburn. Verizon Wireless has been a steady contributor to the Blue Dog Democrats — whose so-called "centrist" approach threatens the public option in health care reform — since 2002.

So why keep sending money to a company like that every month? Especially when you can switch to CREDO Mobile and get:*

* Contract buyout credit up to $200
* 10% off your monthly service fee for 24 months
* Number portability: keep your current mobile number
* No contract for 30 days**
* Automatic donations to progressive nonprofits at no extra cost to you

CREDO Mobile is the one and only progressive phone company, and Planned Parenthood's largest corporate donor. And that means we fight for the causes you believe in, like real healthcare reform, reproductive rights, peace, and the environment.

Since 1985, CREDO members have generated $63 million for groups like NARAL Pro-Choice America, Doctors Without Borders, Planned Parenthood and Earthjustice. With automatic donations from CREDO Mobile members, groups like these can fight for the causes you believe in.

CREDO also offers everything you expect from a first-rate mobile phone company, including award-winning customer service, nationwide coverage on the all-digital Sprint® network† (reaching over 280 million people), and a wide variety of phones and plans to suit your needs.

So take a look at your last phone bill, and ask yourself: is your phone company supporting your progressive values? Think about it. Then think about CREDO Mobile.

Call 866.513.8670 to join now.
(Mention special offer code 300875.)
Offer expires December 21, 2009.


This is a good alternative to the mainstream service providers and the network is run by Sprint.
Amnesty International at one point had a similar promotion but I wasn't able to find it while posting this.
