Albuquerque, NM., January 14, 2010 - Today, Big Stone Phone (stone.com) announced that all profits for the remainder of January from Twittelator Pro, its leading iPhone Twitter client will be donated to help the victims of the tragedy in Haiti.
“We have all heard how desperate the situation in Haiti is, and how it's the poorest nation in the Western Hemisphere.” said Stone Design CEO Andrew Stone, @twittelator. “But what goes unsaid is how its fantastically rich culture has had such a profound effect on the United States and the rest of the world. Haiti has almost no resources, but scraped together what they could to help when Hurricane Katrina hit. My father lived half his life in New Orleans, and so much of what we love about the Big Easy, whether it be jazz, voodoo or soul food, has its roots in Haitian traditions."
Buy Twittelator Pro during the rest of January, and 100% of our profits will go to low overhead disaster relief organizations, such as Doctors Without Borders, http://msf.org.
"The TwitterVerse has heard the call, and is responding. I think iPhone Developers could make a big difference in helping reduce the suffering, if they follow our lead," said Anthony Cardinale, Director of Outreach at Big Stone Phone. "We conceived of Project iPhone Haitian Relief to bring iphone developers together to make a difference. Join us!"
