Nominate your charity for the Telecom donation

By Mauricio Freitas, in , posted: 6-Sep-2007 19:43

You may be aware (or not) Telecom New Zealand decided to move and provide a goodwill gesture towards its customers who suffered (or not) some e-mail outages during its transition period to the new Yahoo!Xtra service.

Telecom decided to give one week free Internet to all of its Xtra users, regardless of them being affected or not.

But most importantly, Telecom is also donating $1 million to four New Zealand charity organisations as voted by its users.

One of these organisations, the Granulosa Cell Tumour Foundation NZ, reached out for the on-line communities and asked that Geekzone users vote for them. I did so, as well as others, because I was impressed on them reaching out for our community, instead of placing money in advertising and other stuff.

So check the discussion on Geekzone, and vote now. You must be an Xtra customer to be able to vote - even if you only have an e-mail address with them, like myself.
