Challenge Your Friends to Support Troops and Veterans This #GivingTuesday!

November 16, 2017

This #GivingTuesday, we’re excited to challenge our supporters and friends to support Cell Phones For Soldiers and help our troops and veterans for the holidays!

It’s simple: Donate $5 or a used cell phone, smartphone, tablet or MP3 player on #GivingTuesday, November 28. Then tag five friends (and us!) on Facebook and challenge them to do the same.

#GivingTuesday is an annual tradition that serves as a philanthropic boost during the hectic holiday season. It’s an opportunity to pause during the mall runs and frantic online shopping to give back. And it raises a tremendous amount of money for great causes—donors in 98 countries gave more than $170 million in 2016 alone!

At Cell Phones For Soldiers, our mission is twofold: Supporting our troops with free talk time so they can connect with their loved ones while serving far away from home; and helping our veterans transition to civilian life by providing one-time grants to help with bills, address communication needs and even avoid eviction.

Your donation, and your friends’ donations, mean that an Air Force officer deployed thousands of miles away can connect with his wife as she deals with a sudden home emergency.

They mean that a Soldier can call her kids to encourage them to do well in school.

That a Marine can hear his parents’ voices and wish them a Merry Christmas.

That a veteran, who has served our country bravely, can sleep easy knowing she’s covered a bill that was causing her unneeded stress.

You can donate money through our website, and find a local drop-off site to donate a phone, or print a shipping label to mail in a device—however you choose to give, we thank you!

We are so honored to provide help to the men and women who serve and protect our country, and so grateful for your support in our mission! Happy #GivingTuesday!
