Default Got an old phone...what to do...here's an idea...

Please Login to Remove!

My wife asked me ok we are getting new phones again what are YOU gonnah do with the old ones......Hmmmmmm well a small brain phart came to mind.....

Donate the phones to our vets.......So regardless of one's view of the war I hope that some of us will consider donating the old ones to a (well at least to me) good cause.

The web site is: Welcome to Cell Phones for Soldiers!

They have A tool for wiping the phone which I'm sure many here will not need but it's there and you can print out a form for your tax deduction ........

Have a great week this week folks......

C-man..... Oh and yeah I'm an old veteran Viet Nam era so I have a warm spot in my heart for these young men and women...... at least they are getting treated somewhat better then we did back then....lol...I'm glad we're doing better.......

Oh and for those that do donate my warmest thanks in advance.....

This is a great idea. My gramps served in 'nam and also did something for the korea events. Also, I know many people over in the middle east right now. They give their lives. Its the least we can do to help them out. Itry to donate everything I can to the vets.

So, from a few generations of my family, thanks for donating
