We’re Now In Facebook

April 21st, 2009 · 3 Comments

Our organization “Pacebutler” is now on the Facebook also to allow Facebook users to network with each other in helping charitable and environmental organizations

 We are currently helping organize a group in the social networking site Facebook called “Old Cell Phones For Life.”  This group was created to allow Facebook users from the United States to network with each other in helping charitable and environmental organizations – through cell phone donations.

As we’ve noted in an earlier post “Cell Phone Recycling In America – Why Not?“, there are now over 700 million used cell phones here in the US, and over 100 million used units are added to this number every year. About 40 million of these phones end up being stashed in our drawers, and 10 million discarded cell phones end up in our landfills.

Fifty million cell phones, in total,  are either hidden away to collect dust or dumped in our landfills to leak toxic substances, think about that.

It’s a terrible waste, considering that each of these otherwise useless mobile phones can be put to good use to help save and rebuild lives.

The Facebook group “Old Cell Phones For Life” is also a venue for us to promote the charitable organizations we are currently working with. These are:

Each of these reputable organizations is doing everything within its limited means to help save and rebuild lives. The American Cancer Society is leading the fight against cancer,  through research and public education,  and provides support to cancer victims and their families.  The Salvation Army helps rebuild lives destroyed by alcoholism and addiction. Feed The Children works in the US and in several countries to bring food and other necessities to needy children and their families. These are but a few shining example of the kind of work that these institutions do.

They all deserve our support.

If you’re in Facebook, I’m inviting you to join the group and help us build a community of people who are making a difference in the lives of others through the simple gesture of donating their cell phones to any one of these organizations. A cell phone for charity is one more vote for life and one less source of toxic pollutants to the environment.

If you wish to send cell phones now to Pacebutler and designate an organization as a beneficiary, please visit the cell phone donations page.

Join Old Cell Phone For Life in Facebook today. Together, we can make a difference.

    Our city (Lawrence KS) just had their yearly tech recycling event where people can bring in hard to recycle items i.e. computer monitors, cell phones, etc. It’s a very handy event.

    I’ll pass this Facebook link along to our staff. Good luck with the new project.

    Facebook is really a great way to expand your site’s presence.

    Did you know that if all of the users of facebook formed a country, it (at last count) would be the 6th largest country on the planet.

    If your recycling message got out to even 1000th of a percent of these folks, it would be a success.

    Best of luck with your facebooking!
