Free Cell Phone and Airtime to Low Income Families...
I am a mom of an elementary child. I send my son to school everyday with a cell phone, because these days you just never know. I want my son to be able to get in touch with me during the day at anytime that he needs to.
Today cellphones are a necesity and everyone despite of their income deserves to have one. Safelink Wireless is a free wireless service for low icome families currently available in Florida, Tennessee, and Virginia. The service is completely free and the customers are given approximately 60 minutes a month. The company will soon be adding additional states where it will offer free service. Those states include Alabama, Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Georgia, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, North Carolina and Pennsylvania.
In general you may qualify under these conditions, however it really depends on the State that you live in.
1. You already receive State or Federal assistance program such as Federal Public Housing Assistance, Food Stamps and Medicaid.
2. Your total household income is at or under 135% of the poverty guidelines set by your State and/or the Federal Government.
Be sure to check out the website for more information and/or apply.
I think that this is trully a wonderful program. I think that it's great that a company such as this one is reaching out to those who are less unfortunate, I hope that more will follow.
Wow ! This is cool....I wish it was available for families in California!
