The Cell Phones For Soldiers program was started in the U.S. in April 2004 by 13-year-old Brittany Bergquist and her 12-year-old brother Robbie of Norwell, Massachusetts. Robbie and Brittany now help support Canadian troops as well by providing much needed supplies such as clothing, laptops, video cameras so our troops can send messages home to their loved ones and other basic necessities. Through generous donations and the recycling of used cell phones, Robbie and Brittany have already helped thousands soldiers around the globe.
It's as easy as 1-2-3! Every phone you donate will help increase the amount of supplies we're able to provide to troops in need! All proceeds raised from our efforts in Canada will go to Canadian troops!

When donating your cell phone(s), please keep in mind:
You can help the charity even more by applying your own postage. Although we provide FREE pre-paid FedEx ground labels upon request, if you choose to pay for postage, we can put more money toward supplies for troops! To request a FREE pre-paid FedEx ground label, please call
1-800-426-1031 toll free or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Minimize weight and save on shipping by mailing cell phones only. Batteries, chargers and accessories are not required but gladly accepted.
Donated cell phones are sold to a company that recycles them. The money we receive from recycling cell phones is used to purchase supplies that we send to troops in need.
