Review and recognise the power of ‘Charitable Giving by re-investment of funds from mobile phone usage at no extra cost to the user.’

Approve a fair-for-all system that directly benefits UK charities from every connection made from a mobile phone at no cost to the user.
Cutbacks have eroded the UK charity sector. Our proposed solution would help redress the balance in funding.
Donations to charities are dwindling. BUT people are still dying from cancer; child abuse and homelessness is on the increase; sport is under-funded; academies are closing; drug abuse is rife…the list of deserving charities is endless.
But we all use mobile phones.
In 2013, over 80m mobile phone subs were taken out in the UK.
Users could ensure that at least 10% of monthly spend would be donated to a chosen charity with no cost to them or change in behaviour.
Example: Just 1m users spending £20 pm.over 1 year would immediately generate £24m for UK charities. A fraction of the life-saving potential.
We urge Government to consider the massive impact this initiative could have on the stretched resources of UK charities.

This e-petition has been rejected with the following reason given:

It did not have a clear statement explaining what action you want the government to take.

The following explanatory notes have been added:

sorry, this isn't very clear what you are actually suggesting. Happy to reconsider if you wish to submit again. However, Government is not able to interfere with how mobile phone companies run their businesses.
