Customers With Disabilities

Hope, anticipation and excitement filled the air as some teachers, students and administrators from Health Sciences Charter School in Buffalo, NY gathered yesterday morning in their computer lab.


My team had sent word that I was in town and wanted a meeting to review their grant application.  I was surprised to see so many people gathered in the room as I was the one who had wanted to surprise them.


The "meeting" wasn't real -- I specifically made a visit to this school with Jennifer Cadiz from Samsung to share the wonderful news that Samsung will donate 80 mobile tablets so they can be a part of the Verizon Innovative Learning School (VILS) program.


Be a Hero! Help Stop Domestic Violence

Think of the many women and children you walked by, perhaps even spoke to today. Try to remember their faces. Some of them might be victims of a silent epidemic.


October is known for being Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  It’s also Cyber Security Awareness Month (and we are offering security tips all this month so follow @Verizon on Twitter.  But did you know it’s also Domestic Violence Awareness Month


The issue of domestic violence is not widely discussed that’s why it’s called the silent epidemic. 


To bring into the light domestic violence in the home where there are children and its devastating affects on them, the Verizon Foundation funded a short video called “Monsters in the Closet.”  This video is supported by National Domestic Violence Hotline.  This short animation urges the viewer – YOU --  to do something… perhaps make a call to help someone that may need help: 1-800-799-SAFE (1-800-799-7233) or Verizon Wireless customers can quickly reach the National Domestic Violence Hotline by dialing #HOPE.
