Cell Phones for Soldiers
In 2004 two teenagers, Robbie and Brittany Bergquist founded Cell Phones for Soldiers. They were 12 and 13 at the time. The charity has provided more than 204 million minutes of free talk time to servicemen and women stationed around the world. They have done this through a calling card program, Minutes That Matter. The funds raised from the recycling of cellular phones has been used to purchase prepaid international calling cards. On average, Cell Phones For Soldiers distributes 7,500 calling cards each week to bases around the world, care package programs, deployment ceremonies and VA hospitals.
“Each year we have been humbled by the amount of people and organizations like Guardian Angels of Home Health, Inc. that take the initiative to support our troops,” said co-founder Brittany Bergquist. “The communication gap between those serving and their families is a crucial need that Cell Phones For Soldiers is committed to addressing for years to come.”
Donated phones are sent to Mindful eCycling for recycling. We are able to donate two and a half hours of free talk time to deployed troops for every donated phone valued at $5.
Approximately half of the phones Mindful eCycling processes are reconditioned and reused. Phones and components that cannot be refurbished are dismantled and responsibly recycled to reclaim materials, including:
- Gold, silver and platinum from circuit boards
- Copper wiring from phone chargers
- Nickel, iron, cadmium and lead from battery packs
- Plastic from phone cases and accessories
