As the holidays approach, let’s not forget to help an important cause like Dosomething.org. Nearly 500 million unused “junk phones” sit in peoples’ homes across the US. (I think I have a burial ground of Nokia’s and Blackberry siting in my closet).
Take time today to join dosomething.org to help survivors of domestic violence by donating all your old cell phones for them to be refurbished. After being refurbished they will be donated to benefit NNEDV’s Safety Net program which educates victims struggling with domestic violence how to use technology to find safety from their abusers.
The process is simple…Register on dosomething.org which takes less than 5 minutes; rummage around your home for all your used phones and print the free shipping label. Before you package it don’t forget get to erase your password and personal information, power it off and lastly deactivate all accounts on the phone.
All you now have to do is ship it and you have now helped a victim struggling though domestic abuse and guess what?! They have extended this program till January 9th, 2014!
