Quinton “Rampage” Jackson joins with Boost Mobile to stop BGD

IRVINE, Calif. (BUSINESS WIRE), November 17, 2011 - Boost Mobile and Quinton “Rampage” Jackson are working together to put a stop to BGD—the Bad Gift Disorder, as we like to call it at Boost. BGD has become an epidemic, affecting millions of Americans each year.

We at Boost Mobile, suspect that a bad gift is given every 8.9457 seconds1. Boost Mobile wants to prevent this by teaching BGD victims how to Be Heard about the gifts they really want, and showing BGD sufferers how to choose better gifts, like a Boost Mobile phone.

People who are interested in joining the cause may go to http://badgiftshurt.org and take a pledge to end BGD, send an e-card intervention to ask for what they really want, and see special offers from Boost Mobile that make excellent gifts.

Additionally, people can share their BGD stories by replying to a new Twitter account, @BadGiftsHurt, and get coping methods to help them come to terms with their own BGD.
