Bmobile partners with One Media Group to give to Haiti

Trinidad - The Trinidad and Tobago Federation of the Red Cross and the Medianet Haiti Relief Fund are the beneficiaries of a donation of over $600,000 from Bmobile and its customers. Soon after the January 12 earthquake in Haiti Bmobile partnered with the CCN group to raise funds through a text donation drive for Haiti.

“We at TSTT consider that we are not only an industry leader; we also take our role as a good corporate citizen very seriously. Our immediate response after the earthquake was to initiate a text donation drive through which our customers could contribute to the relief efforts. In addition to that our employees also collected foodstuff, clothing and other items which were given to United Way and Feel. We have also provided mobile phones and internet services in support of Is There Not a Cause’s work in Haiti,” stated Lisa Agard, TSTT Executive Vice President Mobile Services and Vice President Legal as she presented the cheques to representatives of both organizations.

According to Agard, Bmobile customers donated $329,320 which was matched one to one by TSTT.

Agard also noted that both beneficiary organizations have been recognized regionally and internationally for their role in bringing humanitarian relief to the Haitian people.
