Phone booth with free calling to Mexico, opportunities to win smartphones and airtime cards part of border events in San Diego and El Paso
MIAMI, SAN DIEGO and EL PASO, Texas, May 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Telcel AMERICA, a service provided by TracFone Wireless, Inc., America's largest no-contract cell provider and leader in the communications industry, is kicking off simultaneous Mother's Day and Dia de la Madre celebrations along the U.S.-Mexico border this weekend in San Diego and El Paso with Pedro Moreno, host of the Spanish-language reality show "Nuestra Belleza Latina" and recently named by People magazine as one of the 25 most beautiful Hispanic men.
Dia de la Madre is celebrated in Mexico on May 10, similar to Mother's Day in the U.S., which this year falls on Sunday, May 11. Celebrations along the border embrace both cultures as Mexican daily crossers and travelers have double the reasons to celebrate this weekend.
Telcel AMERICA will begin festivities at the border crossing in San Diego on Friday, May 9 with a meet and greet with Latino heartthrob Pedro Moreno, who will be on hand to make surprise calls to people's moms to wish them a happy Mother's Day-whether they are celebrating in the U.S. or Mexico. The festivities also include pop up phone booths with free calling to Mexico, opportunity to win prizes, such as caps, t-shirts, free smartphones and airtime cards, as well as signed autographs by Pedro Moreno. The famed chicas Telcel will also be on hand to take photos with fans.
The reveling will continue on May 10 at the border in El Paso, Texas. Matriarchs are the cornerstone of Mexican culture and Telcel AMERICA wants to remember moms and ensure distance is not an obstacle to keeping families connected. The weekend Mother's Day activities are as follows:
Friday, May 9 from 4:30 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.
Saturday, May 10 from 12:30 p.m. – 2:00 p.m.
The Mother's Day celebration coincides with the launch of Telcel AMERICA Plus, which is the best way to stay seamlessly connected with friends and family on both sides of the border, now with 1,000 minutes of roaming calls, 1GB data and unlimited texting in Mexico. The roaming feature was recently added to the $60 plan, which already includes 1,000 minutes to call Mexico cells from the U.S., unlimited texts and calls to landlines in Mexico and unlimited talk, texts and 2GB high-speed data in the U.S.
Telcel AMERICA launched the "Aqui y Alla" campaign to create awareness that with 1,000 free roaming minutes in Mexico, families can stay connected on both sides of the Rio Grande. Families are encouraged to upload their photos from the events to Facebook, Twitter and Instagram using the hashtag #AquiyAlla.
