Donate your Gently-used Cell Phones for Soldiers

One of the most volatile markets is – the cell phone market. Every month or two there are new models of smartphones with compelling features that are so convincing that users feel that they are a ‘must have’! The old cell phones are easily forgotten and are either discarded or left to gather dust in the drawers. All these cell phones in working condition and we seldom think of them after they are cast-away.

Repurposing these gently used cell phones and putting them to good use by donating them to charity that works towards keeping our soldiers connected could be one way you can truly help. Free calling cards can be sent to our soldiers by selling old cell phones. Our soldiers who are stationed on national and international borders work under adverse conditions to ensure the safety of our country. Being away from home and their loved ones is many times overwhelming – international calling isn’t cheap either. Sometimes its months before they can talk to someone back at home.

Our simple donations can ensure that they stay connected and relaxed due to the notion that they have the means to call back home anytime and from anywhere. Providing them with calling cards and cell phones could be a noble gesture too rather than it sitting in your drawer to be forgotten forever until it is finally discarded some day!

Gently used cell phones

donate cell phonesGently used phones serve this purpose perfectly. If your unwanted phone hasn’t been used too much, it can be easily refurbished, wiped clean of all the data and sent to our soldiers. The electronic refurbishing companies ensure that the phone does not contain traces of any personal data in the form of messages, photographs or apps. This is mainly because these phones will be used in areas where communication devices could pose a high security risk. These devices hence should not have vulnerabilities that anyone could take advantage of.

Making the best out of waste

A staggering 100 million cell phones are thrown away each year, let’s make the best out of waste and bring smiles on the faces of those who deserve it. Rather than discarding your old cell phones, you can sell your used cell phones and put them to good use and show your gratitude to our soldiers. It’s not environment friendly too. Discarding these phones could cause hard to the environment. It’s better to recycle these mobile phones that are old or refurbish them so that they can be used for our soldiers. So, if you have hardly used a cell phone and brought a new one simply because if it’s promising new features, you could donate your cell phone by mailing it or by stopping by one of the drop off locations for “Cell Phones For Soldiers”. We shall recycle these mobile phones and ensure that they reach our troops!
Many of us take for granted these little things in life such as calling home regularly and staying in touch with our friends. The importance is only realized when you are away and unable to call so easily due to restrictions of distance and time.

It’s time to show our gratitude and donate our old cell phones as a small gesture to show our soldiers that we truly care! Donate your used cell phones today.

Connect Our Heroes Who Protect Us

Every soldier is a hero, sacrificing their safety, comfort and the ability to do simple tasks such as calling their loved ones back home for the service of the nation. Especially internationally deployed military men, many a times experience emotional stress because of their inability to stay connected with their families due to the separation mandated by the nature of their jobs.

One way we can honor our soldiers and support our troops is by helping them connect to their family and friends and alleviate them of some of the emotional pressures they face while away for long periods of time. Donating our old cell phones could make a difference in their lives.

How can we help our heroes stay connected?

Support HeroesNew and cool looking smartphones are launched in the market every other month that makes your old phones look obsolete. When we buy a new phone, the old one is left in the drawer gathering dust. This old cell phone may be quite worthless sitting in the drawer, but has immense value when used to provide our armed forces with devices for communication to help them stay connected.
We can make our small contributions to the benefit of these soldiers – especially those who are deployed overseas, by donating our old cell phones. Something that is so easily forgotten can turn out to be a boon for someone!

How exactly does this work?

These donated cell phones are collected and resold to bulk recyclers. This means that they are refurbished and all the data present on the phone that may present a security risk is wiped off. After the phone is convincingly clean of all the data, it is sent to our troops for use. Phones that are not in good condition are also sold to bulk recyclers and the money made is used to buy free calling cards to support heroes of the U.S. military who are deployed internationally.

This simple, yet thoughtful act might bring smiles on so many faces. While these troops work relentlessly to ensure the safety of our country, there we can show them that we really care. It does not take too much time or efforts – just plain motivation to give for a noble cause.

So, before you throw away your old cell phone or cast it away in the darkest corner of your drawer, think about its true value for someone who might need it! The rates for international calling are generally high and the soldiers stationed there can definitely benefit from the free calling cards. They can stay connected to their homeland, their loved ones and their families.

It’s tough being away from your loved ones especially in adverse weather conditions with the notion that there could be a combat situation any time. By repurposing your old cell phone, you could help bring families closer even when miles apart. With your little contribution they can quickly call and be rest assured that their loved ones are safe at home.

A simple cell phone charity could give our heroes the opportunity to stay connected with their families from anywhere and at anytime with free calling cards and cell phones.
