US carriers have made constant efforts to support communities affected by the coronavirus pandemic, and Keep Americans Connected Pledge is one of them, asking companies to support customers and small businesses unable to pay bills by not cutting their services and make their Wi-Fi hotspots available to anyone at least until May 13.
And this time, the support has gone beyond that. If you are hospitalized and have forgotten your charger, and no one can visit you, or you are a doctor, and forget your charger at home, T-Mobile’s partnership with iHeartMedia might help you.
Along with Verizon and AT&T, the carriers are donating about 40,000 phone chargers for free to hospitals around the US, to support those fighting the pandemic, so that they can stay in touch with their loved ones.
“In these trying times, there’s never been a more critical time to stay connected with loved ones — especially if your loved one is in the hospital. So we jumped at the chance to help with iHeartMedia’s efforts to ensure every hospital has a stash of phone chargers at the ready to keep people connected. Because that’s what we do at T-Mobile and throughout this pandemic, that’s where we’re focused — on keeping everyone connected”, said Janice V. Kapner, EVP and Chief Communications Officer at T-Mobile.
The initiative is very good proof that everyone and anyone can help and make a small difference in the crisis we are living in nowadays.
