Donate your unused cell phones to benefit quake victins in Haiti

Donate your unused cell phones to benefit quake victins in Haiti
Have you amassed a decent amount of phones laying around in small cardboard boxes because you’ve upgraded to different ones over the years? Some of our old handsets are just sitting anxiously around as they collect dust in the deep caverns of our basements; with hopes of being used again someday. You’d probably would never revert back to a previous device unless something inexplicably happens – which would make using them your extreme last resort. You can actually donate all those phones to Phone for Haiti – it’s a relief effort launched by ReCellular; the world’s leading recycler of mobile phones. They’ll donate 100% of the value of your recycled phone to quake victims through the American Red Cross. Even the oldest of handsets can be worth something in third world countries – donated handsets are rebuilt and sold as a low cost alternative to a brand new phone. So instead of having your supposed hand me downs sitting around collecting dust, you can donate it to a good cause for those in Haiti.
