As uncertainty continues to grow due to the outbreak of COVID-19, so too does the impact on our communities. Cricket recognizes the importance of maintaining healthy human connections with family, friends, and schools in times of crisis.
To best allocate resources and help you stay connected, we are working with our parent company, AT&T, which recently launched a $10 million Distance Learning and Family Connections Fund. Donations from this fund will help provide access to tools that parents, students and teachers need to support at-home learning and stay connected to each other.
Thanks to the first contribution of $1 million from this fund to Khan Academy, customers can access Khan Academy’s online learning resources for free. Available in more than 40 languages, Khan Academy offers educational practice exercises, instructional videos, and a personalized learning dashboard that empowers students to study at home.
Khan Academy also offers free tools for teachers and parents to help them track student progress. Learn more at KhanAcademy.org.
A second contribution from this fund of $560,000 was made to Caribu, a video-calling application that allows family members to read, draw, and play games with one another while in distant locations. Caribu will be available to families across the country and around the world, free of cost, for the next two months.
