AT&T and T-Mobile: Stop Delaying Donations to Haiti
This petition made change with 104 supporters!
UPDATE: T-Mobile will deliver all funds this week! That means that AT&T is the only major carrier that hasn't figured out how to rush customers donations to Haiti. Sign the petition and tell AT&T to stop delaying donations now!
So far more than $16 million has been donated to earthquake relief in Haiti via text message, but those donations are being delayed because major phone carriers usually don’t release funds until after you pay your bill. That means at least one billing cycle before the money actually gets sent to charity.
Verizon, Sprint and T-Mobile have already realized this is a problem and are fronting the money – making it available immediately to the relief efforts.
AT&T hasn’t started fronting money and millions of dollars in aid given by customers of AT&T isn’t likely to get to Haiti any time soon.
Please, write to AT&T and tell them to join their competitors and release all donated funds immediately.
