Save a Life: Donate your old Cell Phone to Hope Phones

Hope Phones was founded in 2009 as an innovative way to fund the
efforts of Medic Mobile, a nonprofit focused on advancing healthcare networks in
developing countries using mobile technology.


HOW IT WORKS Hope Phones helps community health workers connect distant
patients to a medical clinic. When you recycle a used cell phone through the Hope
Phones campaign, our recycling partner assigns a value to that phone that is transferred to our account so we can acquire appropriate technology for the field. A $10 cell phone will give 50 families access to emergency medical care, health information, transport services, and clinic resources. The average donated phone in the US will allow us to purchase 2-3 cell phones for the field. Smartphones can yield 5-10.

THE GOAL We are looking for dedicated organizations and corporate partners with
large fleets of phones to get involved with the cause. We take ANY phone - working or
not, and don't need chargers or accessories. Our recycling partner erases all data
through a certified and secure process.

Here are the facts . . .

  • 500,000 cell phones are trashed each day in the United States.
  • By recycling just 1% of those phones, Hope Phones can raise money to buy 1,000,000 new cell phones for Mobile Medics health workers . . and help save millions of lives.

We collected four cell phones for HOPE PHONES at last night's Holiday Fun at Five and many, many non-perishable food items for Center Of Hope's food pantry. Thank you all for your kind generosity!
