“Lost” and “Hobbit” actress Evangeline Lilly is trying to sell her followers on CREDO, a mobile phone service reseller that donates a portion of payments to prog groups like Media Matters, Planned Parenthood and Mayors Against Illegal Guns. Here’s her Facebook post:

For the past six months or so, I have been using the only progressive mobile service carrier in the US: @CREDOmobile. http://www.credomobile.com/

CREDO uses a large percentage of my cell phone bill payments to help me fight for the causes I believe in, they keep me informed on issues that I care about and on top of all that, they provide the best, most personal service I’ve ever experienced from a cell phone carrier.

We’re gonna have to stop you right there. CREDO uses a “large percentage” of your cell phone payments to fund left-wing causes? Sure thing, if by “large percentage” you mean one percent, according to a recent Washington Free Beacon article.

One. Percent.

Math is so very hard. But let’s see what else Lilly has to say about CREDO.

For the first time EVER, I feel really good about paying my cell phone bills.

Would you like to make the switch? Learn more here: http://www.credomobile.com/

If you switch to CREDO mobile, tell them I sent you using this code: 91436

Lilly is such a selfless giver that she wants credit for sending new customers to CREDO. Say, that wouldn’t be an affiliate code that compensates Lilly for new signups, would it?

Update:

It seems she’s finally figured out how this math business works:

Her full Facebook post:

It has been brought to my attention that @CREDOMobile uses 1% of my cell phone bill towards progressive activism. In my Facebook note I wrote “a large percentage”. Obviously 1% is not a larger percentage. I did not mean to be misleading, I was not intentionally being inaccurate. I hope I didn’t cause anybody too much distress with this carelessness.

On the flip side, for me, 1% of my cell phone bill is a LOT more money than any other cell phone carrier is offering to donate to progressive action on my behalf. ($73 million since 1985 as Doug Long pointed out.)

Thank you.

Uh, you’re welcome.
