"I have peace knowing if I am in need, help is only a phone call awayâ€�

"My abuser knows I have an emergency use cell phone and that I will use it to call for help" Anonymous.
These may be just words to many, but the above statements ring true for many domestic violence victims and elderly citizens who have suffered from violence, abuse or just fear of leaving the house. Nervous that they might break down in their car, or fall in bad weather. Mothers with children who are at the hands of their abuser feel there is help one call away with a hidden cell phone at their side. These are just a few of many more unknown scenarios that people do not realize happen each day.
Domestic violence is real. Loneliness is real. Fear is real. The testimonials we receive from people all over the United States after sending them a free emergency use phone are
amazing. They touch our hearts and we are continually striving to reach as many unfortunate people we can and only because of businesses and individuals who take the time to care enough to donate their old cell phones. Every cell phone lying in the closet or put aside can actually help save a life from harm. We would not be able to continue this essential service without the assistance of people who care enough to donate.
We support over 90 shelters all over the U.S. with free emergency use cell phones. We
pay for all shipping costs to send phones out and to receive phones and rely on
volunteers to clear out all data in the phones and recondition them. They are sent to
us to recondition, clear, package individually and then are sent out with a charger
and instructions. Most shelters do not have the time and the manpower to process
each phone to make sure they will work if needed in an emergency situation and
that is why we partner with so many shelters and elderly centers. One of our
shelters adopted the slogan "ONE PHONE, ONE MORE CHANCE"
PLEASE DONATE YOUR USED CELL PHONE THAT IS NO LONGER
OF ANY USE TO YOU. THAT PHONE CAN HELP SAVE A LIFE! THIS IS
ALSO AN AWESOME WAY TO HELP YOUR COMMUNITY AND TO
KEEP THE PHONES OUT OF THE LANDFILLS. TOGETHER WE CAN
MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
