On the heels of Videotron’s announcement this morning, Shaw has announced its own free stuff for customers in the name of Nepal offering.
To help customers stay connected to their family and friends, all Shaw Phone customers will be given complimentary long distance calling to Nepal until Monday, May 25. Shaw customers will also be given access to Indian-based English-language news channel ATN NDTV 24/7 at no cost to access local coverage through to Wednesday, May 6, 2015.
Shaw will also match all employee donations to the Canadian Red Cross dollar-for-dollar up to $100,000 to help provide critical supplies and aid in rescue and recovery efforts. Aligning with the Federal Government’s donation matching program, every dollar donated by Shaw employees could be matched twice, resulting in three dollars of aid to Nepal.
Shaw sells phone service? Who knew? Seriously, who knew? Am I the only one who didn’t? Nice to see them doing something good with it, anyhow. The free news station is a nice touch as well, though hopefully they’ll extend it beyond May 6th since it’s not like this whole mess is going to be put to bed by next Wednesday.
