T-Mobile Not Doing Any Pranks This Year

In the past, T-Mobile has been notorious for its April's Fools pranks. But during this difficult time, the Un-carrier has announced that it will not be releasing any pranks this year. Instead, the company has launched a #GiveThanksNotPranks campaign that will match up to $500,000 in donations it receives.

If you would like to do your part, you can text THANKS to 50555. This will allow you to donate from $5 up to $300,000. For each tweet, T-Mobile will be donating $1 until it reaches its $200,000 threshold. This amount will be going to the Boys & Girls Clubs of America COVID-19 Relief Fund. The organization will be providing assistance to anyone in need as they fight the virus.

T-Mobile CEO John Legere says:

It’s no secret that we love a good prank at T-Mobile, but right now, there’s nothing more important than the health and safety of our world. So we’re exchanging pranks for thanks, so EVERYONE can make a difference for our nation’s healthcare heroes and families in need. And to deepen the impact, I’m asking every other company to join us in support of the hashtag, to ditch the stunts this year and donate to the charities of your choice on April 1st. So slip on that T-Mobile ONEsie or those Sidekicks if you want, and share your stories with us on Twitter using #GiveThanksNotPranks. Your kindness could mean half a million dollars for people on the frontlines of this pandemic.
