Have an old cell phone or tablet that you no longer use? During the entire month of December, you can drop off your older devices at T-Mobile and the carrier will match the after-cost recycled value of them with a minimum matching donation of $1,000,000. The money will be split evenly between Feeding America and Team Rubicon. Stats from the EPA indicate that 135 million handsets are thrown out every year. But for this month, donating them to T-Mobile instead can help make a difference in some people's lives.

No phone is too old to help some one in need. T-Mobile notes that even an old flip phone, enhanced by the carrier's matching donation, can generate over 600 meals to the poor and hungry. To make the donation, simply head over to your nearby T-Mobile store. There is no limit on the number of phones you can donate. Even those devices that are broken or very old are worth $30 on average. Don't stop yourself from bringing in a phone or tablet because you think it might have no value. You'd be surprised at the amount of money that can be squeezed out of an old device.

You don't have to be a T-Mobile subscriber to donate your old phone or tablet, and you can even get an idea of the value of your donation by clicking on this link. And don't forget, T-Mobile will match your donation. So don't let that old phone or tablet sit around and collect dust in a desk drawer when it actually can be used to help the needy. Bring it in today to T-Mobile and you'll be doing something good for others.
