Mobiles for Meals

I spotted this campaign on Netmums and asked around and found 4 unwanted mobile phones - I can imagine that this could be the case for a lot of people and they either just languish in draws or get thrown out. There are obviously ways of making money for yourself from mobile phones but if you're inclined to make the odd charity donation here and there but you're a bit short of money you might want to consider donating in a way whereby you don't have to use your own hard cash - you simply just send off your old (they can even be broken!) mobile phones and by doing so you will be helping to feed hungry UK children. Apparently there are approx 15 million unused mobile phones in the UK, each one worth between £5 - £100. Orange and T-mobile are kindly putting all unused mobile phones through their recycling programme to raise money for hungry children.

Here are my phones and I will be sending them off shortly, using a freepost label found on Netmums. Or if it's easier for you Orange and T-mobile shops are taking them and will give you a receipt.

Details about Mobile for Meals can be found here and if you'd like to watch this video by Camila Batmanghelidjh founder and director of Kids Company, she explains what your old mobile phone will do for underpriviledged children.
