Sky Mobile launches data donations to support the Disasters Emergency Committee’s Ukraine appeal

Monday 28 March 2022
  • Customers can now donate their spare Piggybank data, with every 25GB donated resulting in a £10 donation to the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC)

Sky Mobile has announced its pledge to donate £100,000 to the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC), who are providing invaluable support to those in need in Ukraine and neighbouring countries.

Sky Mobile customers can choose to donate their spare data, which Sky Mobile will then turn into a monetary donation to support the DEC.

Customers can donate 25GB of spare data, as many times as they’re able to, and, for every 25GB contributed, Sky Mobile will donate £10 to the charity to provide food, water, shelter, and medical assistance.

Customers can donate until 15 April, or until the £100,000 target has been reached.

To donate data and help support, Sky Mobile customers can head to www.sky.com/mobile/donate or simply visit the My Sky app.
