01 Sep SBC's new online payment service collects cash to fight breast cancer
MILWAUKEE—Consumers who switch from traditional paper phone bills to SBC eBill will help raise awareness—and money—for breast cancer research.
Through the “Save a Stamp—Help Save a Life” campaign, created in conjunction the Susan G. Komen Foundation, SBC Services Inc. will contribute $1 dollar for every SBC customer that signs up for SBC eBill from Sept. 1 to Nov. 15, 2004.
In 2004, an estimated 216,000 new cases of breast cancer will be diagnosed in American women, according to the foundation. Although the number of new incidences of breast cancer has increased over the past 30 years, the mortality rate has decreased. This is due in part to the efforts of organizations such as the Susan G. Komen Foundation in raising awareness and making great efforts to raise funds for breast cancer research. In recognition of the work still to be done in fighting this disease, SBC Services has committed to donate a minimum of $25,000 to the cause.
SBC eBill is a free online billing service offered by SBC Online Services. It allows customers to sort and organize the bill by numbers called, length of call, place, date,or cost; check on unrecognized phone numbers by clicking on a number in question to view the name and contact information of the person dialed; archive up to six months of billing history, decide if and when monthly payments are made from checking or savings accounts or credit card and help protect against fraud by eliminating the delivery of paper bills to unsecured mailboxes.
