Helping victims of domestic violence and the environment at the same time? You bet!
Most phones end up getting refurbished and resold once they're traded in. ReCellular's mission is to sustainably recycle and reuse electronics in the most environmentally sound way. The company also helps to fund the causes of various nonprofits by donating money to them from the phones you donate.
Unfortunately, domestic violence is prevalent in our society. Even 1 in 3 dating relationships result in some sort of abuse. The NCADV works to provide support and resources to victims of abuse through step-by-step action plans, community awareness, and public policy.
They are doing all the hard work; all you have to do is Donate a Phone. Next time you want to upgrade, instead of selling your old one or tossing it, send it to the NCADV. You can even download shipping labels to send your phone to them for free.
Every phone helps, but to make an even bigger impact, start a collection drive at school, church, or through your sports teams or other organizations. Find help on how to start a community action project at Dosomething.org.
