We may not see daily updates on military action in the Middle East on the news anymore, but that doesn’t mean our troops aren’t still hard at work across the globe to keep us safe.
According to Visual Capitalist, there are more than 200,000 U.S. troops deployed overseas in 177 countries. Check out the cool infographics on their page to see just how widespread our military truly is.
Of course, deployment in some cases means that military servicemen and women are far from home, and missing events in the lives of their family and friends. That’s where Cell Phones For Soldiers comes in.
When you donate money or your old mobile devices to Cell Phones For Soldiers, you provide hours of free talk time to our troops. Just a $5 donation provides 2 1/2 hours of talk time, a respite from the stress of deployment and an opportunity to connect with the people they love.
For more information on donating cell phones, smartphones or tablets; or on making a cash donation, please visit our donation page. Cell Phones For Soldiers is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
