Verizon Wireless providing free phones to domestic violence victims

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) and Verizon Wireless has a program called Hopeline, that provides refurbished phones for domestic violence victims.

The company has also partnered with the National Network for its Let Your Heart Rule program against domestic violence and sexual assault.

Nice to know the wireless companies do more than charge us every month.

Does this free give away problem, also apply to the victims of domestic violence if they are men?

This was a good idea that wireless companies merge on this program. I do hope so that many victims will be help. This program will be a lot of help.

Yeah, I never thought they will be this generous. But anyway, still a good thing. Kudos to them for that!

What a cool person he was when he was still alive. And what a waste of a genius mind at a very young age. Some say life begins at 40 but what the heck, we don't know when will the Lord come for us so we better live our life to the fullest and have fun at the same time. Once again.

Just catching up to this news. Jason, thank you. Al, thank you. Wow. I've been in another mode of living and did not manage to tune in to Al or his work for quite a few years. I met Al through you Jason, I believe - Or, could it be that you and I met through Al ? I know it was at WKCR, playing "Maggot Brain" in the wee hours.

I had the sense, though, that he was putting up curtains, so to speak, to keep parts of himself hidden. But whatever he was withholding, he was still sharing one of the best parts, his sense of humor and his talent for entertaining---not in the showman's sense, in the host's sense. He was keeping us all drawn into the conversation as if around a campfire.
