Each time you get a new cell phone, what do you do with the old one? I know in our house we probably have about 3 inactive cell phones stuffed in a drawer.
Cell Phones for Soldiers is a non-profit organization founded by two teenagers from Massachusetts and $21. Today, they have raised almost $2 million in donations and distributed more than 500,000 prepaid calling cards to soldiers serving overseas.
You can donate any type of cell phone and Cell Phones for Soldiers will then sell it to a company that recycles cell phones. The money received is then used to purchase prepaid calling cards that are sent to soldiers serving overseas. Each cell phone donated is enough to provide an hour of talk time to a solider.
Visit Balanced Life Chiropractic & Wellness Center at 361 Broadway in Bethpage and place your cellphones in the donation box.
