 LCI INTERNATIONAL, CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL LAUNCH


"CHILDREN'S CALLING" AFFINITY PROGRAM TO BENEFIT THE HOSPITAL
 COLUMBUS, Ohio, June 2 /PRNewswire/ -- LCI International and Columbus Children's Hospital today unveiled a first-of-its-kind program in central Ohio that could contribute thousands of dollars to patient care and research at this leading pediatric hospital.
 Through "Children's Calling," supporters of Children's Hospital have an opportunity to save money on their residential long distance bills while providing on-going financial support to the hospital without writing a check or giving cash.
 For new LCI residential customers who sign up under the Children's Calling program, LCI will donate to the hospital a percentage of the amount of their long distance bills each month they use LCI.
 "Children's Hospital is continually seeking ways to find financial support to care for its patients and research programs," said Thomas J. Wynne, LCI president. "This affinity program offers the hospital continuing monthly income without the labor-intensity of special events fundraising."
 Columbus Children's Hospital serves more than 280,000 patients each year from all over Ohio and the United States.
 "The Children's Calling program holds great potential to generate future financial resources for Children's," said John H. Strick, executive director of the Children's Hospital Foundation. "We are glad LCI came forward with such an innovative approach to supporting the hospital."
 Children's Calling is the first of several community-related affinity programs LCI International will launch in the next few months. "This is an innovative way to put dollars back into the community and assist worthwhile organizations such as Children's Hospital in meeting their goal of helping children," Wynne commented.
 The long-distance calling features of LCI's Children's Calling program includes worldwide service and calling capabilities; Info 700 information services which provides up-to-the-minute information on sports, weather, stock quotes and entertainment news; LCI's "WorldCard," which offers national and international calling convenience and savings; cost-saving 700 intra-area code calling services and simple monthly billing.
 LCI International is a worldwide, facilities-based telecommunications company that provides a full line of voice, data and video transmission services to meet the needs of both business and residential customers through its state-of-the-art fiber optic network.
