Recyle Your Phones to Help Haiti

Want to help the Red Cross' Haiti earthquake fund, but can't afford to donate money? Then consider donating your used or broken old cell phones to Phones for Haiti. Even if you don't have any old cell phones, but have a phone battery, charger or accessory, these can all be donated to the program.

Just get a free shipping label from the website and send them your phone or phone accessories. The program will then send the working phones with phone charges to Haiti so earthquake victims can call their loved ones around the world. Broken phones and phone accessories will be recycled and the money earned through the program will be given to the Red Cross to support relief efforts in the country.

It's good for the environment and great for the victims of the earthquake.
