Verizon Hopeline – a program designed to support domestic voilence shelters.
Here's the info Taylor sent me:
Verizon Wireless’ long-running HopeLine® program collects no-longer-used wireless phones and equipment in any condition from any service provider. The used phones are either refurbished or recycled. With the funds raised from the sale of the refurbished phones, Verizon Wireless donates wireless phones and airtime to survivors, and provides funding and other contributions to non-profit domestic violence shelters and prevention programs across the country.
Phones that cannot be refurbished are recycled in an environmentally sound way. Through HopeLine's recycling efforts, more than 200 tons of electronics waste and batteries have been kept out of landfills.
We’d love for you to help us educate your readers on how they can make a difference by donating their old cell phones to HopeLine. Of course, how you craft the story is up to you—whether you encourage readers to donate their old phones or share how they can avoid sending used devices to landfills. We’re simply suggesting that Verizon’s HopeLine program have a place within your post.
At the end of the month when we reach our goal, we plan to donate $25,000 to local nonprofit organizations which benefit domestic violence survivors and their families. We would be honored to have you participate in this check presentation in your local community. After your post, we’ll be sure to send you over a blog badge in gratitude, so that you can give your site a bit more flair.
