To join, customers need to fill out subscription forms at www.communityreach.com.

"This is a for-profit business with a nonprofit focus."
According to CommunityReach, if a customer spends $35 a month on long-distance calls he will contribute more than $20 to the organization of his choice over the course of a year.
