Is your phone company committed to progressive causes?

When you're paying as much as I do to own and operate my smart phone, you may want to know who does your phone company support?

Here's what I learned when doing a bit of research on the topic (I was considering an iPhone with AT&T) Here's what stopped me: AT&T has given a whopping $522,500 to House Tea Party Caucus members from 2009-2011. Think Verizon is better? Verizon Wireless pumped thousands into the campaign coffers of Rand Paul and Marco Rubio and Ron Johnson, all Tea Party-backed Senators.

We need real change, not lip service. That's why I take action with CREDO Mobile. CREDO is a mobile phone company just like AT&T or Verizon Wireless -- except, unlike them, CREDO works with us for progressive change.

CREDO gives 1% of charges to amazing nonprofits like Mercy Corps, Planned Parenthood and the ACLU, and they've raised over $67 million in the last 25 years.
As a CREDO Customer, I agree with their values AND love their service. But frankly, $67 million looks like chump change next to the $522 mil AT&T gave the Tea Party. That's why I'm promoting CREDO to my friends who support positive change, and they offered us both a sweet deal:
Here's the Special Deal
If you sign up to be a CREDO customer, they'll give you a CREDO bill credit for the cancellation fee on your current mobile contract (up to $350) and give you 10% off your monthly voice fee for 2 years, plus they'll give me $100. Pretty good, right?

If you want to find out more, go to http://action.credomobile.com/tellyourfriends2012/January/MSfriend.html

Or call one of their cool customer service people at 866-689-0099

Make sure to mention my name and phone number so I get credit!
