Proceeds from Boost Mobile’s $1 Phone Days Promotion Benefit Boys & Girls Clubs Nationwide

(BUSINESS WIRE), June 24, 2013 – Boost Mobile:

WHAT: Boost Mobile recently partnered with Boys & Girls Clubs of America to bring back its most successful handset promotion, $1 Phone Days. For each new customer who signed on from May 29 through June 2, Boost Mobile donated $1 to Boys & Girls Clubs. During $1 Phone Days this year, Boost Mobile raised more than $106,000 which will be donated to local Boys & Girls Clubs across the nation with an $11,000 donation locally to the Boys & Girls Club of Hollywood.
The donation to Boys & Girls Club of Hollywood will support their anti-bullying teen leadership program, “Spread Love Not Hate.” The new program consists of 20 Teen Youth Leaders (ages 12-17) who will participate in creative and educational activities designed to provide direct early intervention anti-bullying prevention activities for approximately 75 elementary school students over a 12-month period. The program will culminate with a documentary film created by the Teen Youth Leaders. For more than a century, Boys & Girls Clubs have served nearly 4 million young people, through membership and community outreach, in some 4,000 Club facilities throughout the country.
