I’m excited to announce that I’ve just switched my phone service to The People’s Operator (TPO) and I’ll be working with them as an ambassador to help spread what they’re about! The People’s Operator is a phone service creating a global community whose mission is to change lives for the better. TPO will allow you to donate 10% of your monthly cellphone spend to a cause of your choice, at no extra cost and without sacrificing good service.

Jimmy Wales, Chairman of TPO and Founder of Wikipedia said:

“The launch of TPO in America is an incredible milestone for the business. This is only the beginning of the social good we will initiate with the support of our customers and collaborations with additional charities who are joining our goodness movement. TPO puts customers and the causes they care about first, so the more we can facilitate the company’s growth in the US, the more funds we will be able to pass to the communities that need it while our portfolio of cause partners continues to grow.”

Social change and exciting philanthropic advocacy lies at the heart of the TPO’s business operation, which will harness consumers’ desire to make the world a better place by simply using their mobile phone. TPO will empower those who wish to “do good” with the means to donate a percentage of their bill to a charity or cause of their choosing, including TPO cause partners such as World Wildlife Fund, Save the Children, the ASPCA and Feeding America.


Why I love TPO

TPO is a community of people that are raising money for causes just by being part of it. It’s an ad-free social space, that is supported by a one-of-a-kind mobile network. Together they have the power to raise billions for good causes. Instead of doing what other companies do and spend more than 10% of your money on expensive TV commercials & Billboards – TPO gives 10% to something you care about.

About TPO

Founded in 2012, The People’s Operator first launched in the United Kingdom; matching the ability to raise funds for a wide range of social causes with a high quality mobile service and excellent customer service. TPO’s ongoing commitment to instigate a global social movement for good will now be realized in the U.S. market; supported with a promotional campaign that will encompass live digital feeds from the newly-launched TPO Community, on www.tpo.com, experiential activities and a program of TPO inspired content which will include cause-related testimonials, news updates, videos from charity partners and the community they support – a key component to TPO’s call-to- action strategy – and incentives to join the TPO social movement.
