Donate your Cell Phone
Whilst most of us take having a cell phone for granted, there are actually many groups and people who could really benefit from cell phone access but do not always have a cell phone on hand like most of us. On the other hand, there are many people across the United States who not only have a cell phone that they can use whenever they want to or need to but they also have one or more used cell phones that they have since replaced and which are left around their home gathering dust.
Rather than having unused cell phones lying around the home, one very effective and viable option that could benefit others as well as de-cluttering your home is to consider cell phone donation. This is a process that could really benefit those that are not lucky enough to have such easy access to cell phones and is therefore a very worthwhile cause towards which to donate your old and retired cell phones.
It is also worth remembering that by donating old cell phones you will also be doing your bit for the environment, as your old phones will not end up in landfills and the components and parts can be recycled and used effectively even if the cell phone itself is not in working order.
Some of the people or groups who benefit from cell phone donations
There are a number of different cell phone donation project and programs in operation in the United States, which means that there are a number of different groups and individuals that could benefit from the cell phone donations of those who have retired phones that they no longer use or need. Some of the potential beneficiaries of your cell phone donations may include:
Soldiers: The Cell Phones for Soldiers program is an invaluable one that could see your donated cell phone being used to provide soldiers that are based overseas fighting for the country with a means of communicating with their loved ones back home.
Emergency communication tool: The 911 Cell Phone Bank is able to use your donated cell phones to provide a means of emergency communication to those in need.
A range of good causes: A number of organizations are able to use donated cell phones to refurbish and raise money for a variety of good causes, so your donated cell phone could be used to help with this valuable funding for some great projects.
