Stream has jumpstarted its new charitable partnership by donating more than 1 million minutes of free talk time through Cell Phones for Soldiers. The family-run nonprofit supplies calling cards and cell phones to active-duty military members and veterans.
The donation resulted from Stream’s first associate promotion in support of Cell Phones for Soldiers. After launching the partnership in May, the home services provider said it would donate 1,000 minutes of international talk time for each new mobile customer signed on throughout the month.
“Stream helps people get connected with its Mobile Services, and now they are helping our organization provide a lifeline for America’s bravest,” Robbie Bergquist, Co-Founder of Cell Phones For Soldiers, said in a statement. “We are extremely grateful to Stream and its Associates for their support.”
Bergquist and his sister, Brittany, founded the national nonprofit in 2004, when they were just 12 and 13 years old. Since then, Cell Phones for Soldiers has provided more than 200 million minutes of talk time and nearly 12 million recycled cell phones to service members. Dallas-based Stream said it plans to support the organization on an ongoing basis through various promotions with its associates.
