Donate your old cell phones to support our troops

Original post made on Oct 27, 2010

With the holidays approaching, so many of our nations' young men and women are serving in remote locations away from family and friends, a phone call is a huge reminder of home. Donate your old cell phones to remind our troops that they are not forgotten and help them communicate with their families. The donated cell phones will be sold to a company that recycles them and the money from recycling the cell phones is used to purchase calling cards that will be sent to troops in need. To donate or for more information, visit www.cellphonesforsoldiers.com/locateDropoff.

I would like to donate 2 phones, but the article doesn't not state where to donate the phones.

Leave the locatedropoff off of the URL. That will get yo to the site where you can print a prepaid shipper.
