As many of you know, we partnered last June with the National Parks Conservation Association (NPCA) and agreed to donate to their worthy cause every time one of our cell phone plan customers signed up for our email billing option. I’m particularly proud of our commitment. The NPCA strives daily to ensure our national parks—394 distinct sites covering more than 83 million acres—get the care and support needed. From the Grand Canyon to Gettysburg, these parks are America’s legacy to the world.
Now I’d like to tell you about another way you can help our national parks. Until October 31, 2011, Consumer Cellular is sponsoring a Facebook fund-raising campaign called “Support the National Parks.”
Joining the campaign is easy and free. Just click on the above “Support” link and choose either the join—remember it’s free to join—or donate option.
Every time someone joins, we’ll donate fifty cents. And when someone makes a donation, we’ll match it twice. Put another way, for every dollar donated to the NPCA, we’ll double the amount, turning that single dollar into three dollars!
It may sound like a cliché, but I believe helping our national parks is one of those “Now more than ever” moments in America’s history. Today, government spending is under very close scrutiny and budgets are tighter than ever. Our parks and monuments truly need your help.
I encourage you to join our NPCA campaign before the end of October, and ask you to send the Facebook link to family and friends so they may join or donate as well.
Whether it’s fifty cents or fifty dollars, every donation to the NPCA helps preserve America’s legacy, from sea to shining sea.
