Cell Phones for Soldiers

Tags: Cell phones for soldiers

My son got a new cell phone for Christmas. Even his old phone was better than the ancient one I carry around, so I'm upgrading to his.

I thought I'd find out if I could donate my old phone to an organization that benefits military members. Sure enough, right away I stumbled onto the website for Cell Phones for Soldiers.

The group accepts gently used cell phones (and accessories like chargers) through drop boxes or by mail. They recycle the phones and turn the cash they get for them into calling cards for troops.

On the website, you can print out a mailing label. You can even link to a program that erases data like stored phone numbers from your phone before you donate it.

If you got a new phone for Christmas, please consider giving your old one to Cell Phones for Soldiers. You'll be making a great call!
