Cudos to CREDO: Free Calls on Election Day

WALD, Working Assets Long Distance, has become Credo. They have long been a worthy provider of phone service, giving away over $1,000,000 a year to progressive causes. While I just use them for my small number of landline business calls, they also provide cellular. Their monthly statements are quite educational, filling customers in about important issues, and offering discounts on new progressive books. (I am too cheap to buy new books even at a discount, though.) I pass this along from my inbox:

The Call's On Us November 4th

Dear Betsy,

As a CREDO member, you've probably noticed that we're different from the other phone companies. Their mission is to make money for their shareholders. Our mission is to change the world, and that includes promoting nonpartisan civic engagement in America. Democracy is not a spectator sport, and we want to make sure everyone gets out and votes.

So, to help you get out the vote this year, CREDO is making all outbound domestic calls free this November 4 during your state's polling hours, on both CREDO Mobile and CREDO Long Distance.

We hope you'll call all your friends and urge them to get out and vote. We're picking up the tab, so you won't need to worry about the cost.

More details about our Free Election Day Calling program can be found on the Frequently Asked Questions page on our website. If you have further questions, please don't hesitate to drop us a note back to

If you're interested in taking this offer on the road—or out to your local GOTV office—we urge you to sign up for CREDO Mobile. You'll get free election day calling...a sleek new phone...and great mobile service from a company that shares your values. Just click here to find out more. Don't delay, though — you'll need to sign up by this Saturday, October 25th to receive your new phone in time for Election Day free calling.

Many thanks — and we hope you'll do everything you can to help get out the vote this year.
