Amnesty International USA has launched a new mobile service through a partnership with MVNO Working Assets. The service, called Amnesty Wireless, gives people the opportunity to donate to worthy causes during their day-to-day activities.
While calling from an Amnesty Wireless handset, 10% of your charges are donated to Amnesty International. But the philanthropic features don't end there, with a notification of urgent human-rights issues coming with every monthly bill, and the ability to call targeted leaders from your handset free for up to 30 minutes each month.
To make the proposition even more attractive, Amnesty Wireless is offering a free LG 225 handset, up to US$175 toward paying out a previous service contract, and 200 anytime minutes plus unlimited night and weekend minutes to new customers. On top of this, subscribers of Amnesty Wireless, which runs on the Sprint CDMA network, can make unlimited free calls to other Amnesty Wireless users anytime, all for US$29.99 per month.
