The Telecom for Charity Initiative

Part of: Completed/Archived edit
We first conceived the concept for "Telecom for Charity" in 2006. Nice Touch Communications is a telecommunications sales and consulting firm in operation since 1997.

We first conceived the concept for “Telecom for Charity” in 2006. Nice Touch Communications is a telecommunications sales and consulting firm in operation since 1997. We are seeking to develop a new trend of socially responsible business practices through this initiative by helping non profit organizations get the best possible telecom services and rates, and to create a “ home base for telecom and various technology sources” that is; a network of carriers, vendors and the like who are committed to the same goals. The program entitled “Telecom for Charity” is just that: a way to use everyday business telecom services at a reduced rate or increased capacity while putting forth 5% of the total bill to a selected charity of choice.

The process that our program entails is simple:

- Assessment: We work with you and your organization to understand your telecommunications needs, directions, goals, and how to achieve them.

- Consultation: Based on your needs and wants, we provide you with unbiased options that fit your criteria, taking into account: cost, efficiency, and overall communication capabilities. We are authorized agents of best of breed telecom carriers, E.G. M5 Networks, Qwest, Level 3, Covad, InterCall, Paetec Communications , Switch & Data , New Edge Networks, NTT Communications, X/0 and several others. We are not resellers; all billing is done directly from the carrier.

- Savings: After choosing the optimum carrier/solution for your organization’s needs, you are sure to benefit from increased communications capabilities at more affordable costs.

- Donation: In addition to the obvious benefits, our program will donate 5% of your monthly bill to the charitable organization of your choice.

- Additional Revenue Stream: Through fund raising and telecom sponsorship efforts, anybusiness that procures any telecommunication service through the initiative will have 5% of their bill donated back to the referring Not for Profit organization. We like to call it a “telecom sponsorship”.

In summary, there is no reason why any business or not-for-profit organization should not review any telecom opportunity through our “Telecom for Charity” initiative. We are in the process of establishing a board of advisors to help promote this initiative consisting of telecom experts, consultants, carrier representatives, members of non-profit organizations and their telecom/IT staff, members of the media, and other concerned parties. We will also promote “T for C” through a dedicated website and press

releases when milestones are achieved.

We are optimistic that we can work together to create a new standard in our field utilizing our “T for Cinitiative through positive, ethical, and philanthropic business practices. We look forward to further discussions regarding our programs.
