Customers at a gas station in Madison, Wis., received a free tank of gas on Verizon as part of #ACallForKindness where the company is working with its partners to make the world a kinder place, one kind act at a time.

  • Part of the company’s #ACallForKindness campaign, the surprise and delights are meant to brighten people’s days

  • Also raises awareness of the value that comes with being a Verizon customer

MADISON, WIS. - Smiles, tears of joy and gratitude - that’s how more than 80 customers at a gas station in Madison reacted last week while, for four hours, Verizon, the network America relies on, surprised and delighted them with a free tank of gas, no questions asked. It was the kickoff to Verizon’s ‘Fuel the Love’ campaign where over the next few weeks, it will be delighting customers at gas stations in at least 15 cities nationwide with the same surprise.

“We’re topping off pumps all in the name of kindness,” said Krista Bourne, COO, Verizon Consumer Group. “We know how tight budgets are today, and we hope to have helped not only directly with those who received a free tank, but also inspire others to help out where they can as well.”

Fuel the Love ties in with the company’s #ACallForKindness campaign, which Verizon, along with dozens of other corporate partners, are looking to make the world a kinder place, one act at a time. So far, Verizon has fueled up tanks in Madison, Portland and Phoenix.

While Verizon is saving people money directly at the pump in these select locations, it’s also making sure people know the value that comes with being a Verizon customer each and every day:
