PHOENIX, Ariz. (July 24, 2013)… Esperança is collecting smartphones that are no longer used and sending them to their partners in Bolivia, Nicaragua and Mozambique. The phones will be recycled on an on-going basis and given to those who can document Esperança’s projects through pictures and videos.
All smart phones from any service provider, regardless of age or condition will be accepted. If you happen to have a phone lying around, please consider donating it and helping to share hope with the world.
“It’s a win-win for everyone involved,” said Tom Egan, president and CEO of Esperança. “We’re providing our partners with a tool they wouldn’t have access to and in return, we’re getting videos and photos of our projects in real-time. It’s amazing how beneficial technology can be to nonprofits.”
For more information or schedule a time to drop off an old smart phone, call Jared Leslie, development director at (602) 252.7772 ext. 101.
