The wireless carrier will enable its customers to take advantage of free calls and texts to anyone on the TPO network, while saying that 25 percent of its profits will go to great causes.
“Customers can direct TPO to give 10% of their call, text and data spend to a charity, community group or other good cause of their choice,” the carrier notes.
“Organisations can receive 10% of call, text and data spend in respect of any customers that they sign up to TPO.”

TPO customers will also be offered the possibility to receive updates on their mobile phones on the manner in which their money is being spent by the good causes they have opted to support. More info can be found on the company's website.
“TPO is a UK based company whose management and customer service teams are all based in London,” the carrier also notes.
“Charities, community groups and other good causes will receive grants from the TPO Foundation, an independent charity whose donations will have the ultimate effect of strengthening society and supporting local communities.”
