Starting tomorrow and continuing through next Thursday, I will begin posting a series of tutorials I’ve written. I hope you’ll stop by to visit.
I found two old cell phones we’re not using and was wondering what to do with them when I learned about the Cell Phones for Soldiers organization.
Cell Phones for Soldiers collects and sells old unused cell phones. This funds prepaid calling cards which given to soldiers for free so they can call home. For security reasons, I can’t just send my extra cell phones directly to a soldier in a war zone. Most cell phones are not GSM-enabled and won’t work in the Middle East, hence selling them to raise money.
My package was mailed yesterday. Somewhere out there, a soldier will be able to speak with family waiting anxiously at home. It could be a friend or beloved member of your family.
You can read about the program here and find a drop-off point near you or download a mailing label.
