T-Mobile (NASDAQ: TMUS) is teaming up with iHeartMedia — and even Verizon and AT&T in a show of solidarity — to donate nearly 40,000 phone chargers to hospitals nationwide so that isolated patients can stay connected to loved ones (and be reached by loved ones) at a time when they need it the most, the company said.
Patients are relying on their mobile phones more than ever right now — when in the hospital, it´s their connection to friends and family via phone calls, video chats, texts and social media. And, because they´re kept isolated from their friends and family, their smartphones may be the only way to hear and see their loved ones for days, and sometimes weeks. The last thing patients need to be worried about is whether they´ve got a charged phone, so T-Mobile is stepping up to make sure they won´t have to think twice about that.
The Un-carrier has already supplied 20,000 chargers to hospitals in Seattle, New York City, Los Angeles, New Orleans and San Diego, and will continue to fulfill requests from hospitals nationwide.
As part of its Businesses Doing Good, an initiative highlighting businesses like T-Mobile that are serving the communities during the COVID-19 pandemic, iHeartMedia will promote the campaign across its platforms including broadcast radio, digital and on social media.
