T-Mobile Doubles Hurricane Recovery Donations During MLB World Series

October 23, 2018

The Un-carrier is once again doubling down on its hurricane recovery efforts during the MLB World Series, pledging to donate $10,000 per home run to Team Rubicon plus $2 per Twitter or Instagram post using #HR4HR.

There’s no better time to be a baseball fan. Today, T-Mobile (NASDAQ: TMUS) announced the company is doubling its Home Runs for Hurricane Recovery (#HR4HR) donations during the MLB World Series. T-Mobile will now donate $10,000 for every home run to Team Rubicon, plus $2 every time anyone – T-Mobile customer or not – posts the #HR4HR hashtag to Twitter or Instagram.

With the help of baseball fans everywhere this past year, the Un-carrier has raised over $4 million for Team Rubicon, a non-profit that unites the skills and experiences of military veterans with first responders to rapidly deploy emergency response teams in communities struck by disaster. T-Mobile just released a gripping new ad featuring legendary sportscaster Vin Scully, highlighting the impact Team Rubicon and T-Mobile have made in devastated communities this hurricane season. 



And, #HR4HR continues to help those in need – as recently as this past month, when Hurricane Michael made landfall. Thanks to the campaign, Team Rubicon volunteers were able to deploy a reconnaissance team to Panama City, FL in the immediate aftermath to identify hard-hit communities and provide clean-up assistance at zero cost to impacted residents.

To show additional support, T-Mobile customers can contribute to recovery efforts by donating directly through Text to Give:
