Text to Donate Campaign Underway to Support The One Fund

Verizon Wireless customers can now text-to-donate to support The One Fund. The One Fund was established by Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick and Boston Mayor Thomas Menino to assist families most affected by the attacks in Boston on April 15. 

Customers can donate $10 by texting BOSTON to 80108. Those who would like to give more can donate up to $50 via text. Text messaging fees will be waived and 100 percent of each donation goes directly to The One Fund. Verizon Wireless customers who pay monthly bills will see their donations on the next regular monthly bill. For customers using the company’s prepaid services, donations will be taken from customers’ prepaid balances.

Additionally, the Verizon Foundation has pledged $100,000 to The One Fund. The foundation also will provide a 1-to-1 match of employee online donations made.
