Do good this holiday season with your old phone or tablet
T-Mobile #GivingTWOgether Phone Drive
You know those old phones that you have laying around your house? You know the kind I mean. They are several years old and seem to reappear every few months or so as someone in the house moves it around the house. THAT phone. Instead of letting it sit around your home, why not to put it to good use? Well now during this holiday season, your old phone or tablet can do a lot of good at T-Mobile and we want to share exactly how. We hope that you enjoy our Do good this holiday season with your old phone or tablet: T-Mobile #GivingTWOgether Phone Drive post.
Do Good with the T-Mobile #GivingTWOgether Phone Drive
T-Mobile is hosting the #GivingTWOgether Phone Drive this holiday season from December 1 – 31, 2017. During the month of December, you can recycle any old phone or tablet at a local T-Mobile store. The best part is that T-Mobile will match your donation, after costs, and then they will donate the proceeds to Feeding America and Team Rubicon. The company is pledging a minimum matching donation of $1,000,000 to be split evenly between the two charities which will:
- buy at least 5,000,000 meals for hungry families
- deploy 5,000 veterans to serve communities affected by disasters.
TheT-Mobile #GivingTWOgether Phone Drive is the perfect follow up to the recent #GivingTuesday when T-Mobile put their customers, employees and fans in charge of giving away up to $2 million to charity. In addition, T-Mobile, the official wireless sponsor of MLB, helped to raise awareness and more than $2.78 million for hurricane recovery & relief in the #HR4HR (Home Runs for Hurricane Recovery) program.
More than 135 million cell phones are trashed each year according to the EPA and T-Mobile wants to help change that with this program. Your old flip phone could buy a crucial piece of equipment for a disaster relief strike team member or 600 meals to those in need. Head to T-Mobile.com/Ways-to-Give to get involved.
America's “Un-carrier” T-Mobile
As America's “Un-carrier”, T-Mobile has:
- ended the 2-year contract
- made unlimited data the industry standard
- forced AT&T and Verizon to change the way they do business.
T-Mobile features not only the most advanced nationwide 4G LTE network but also fastest and most responsive. In fact, T-Mobile customers get an LTE signal more often than customers of any other major wireless company while delivering outstanding wireless experiences to more than 70.7 million customers.
Head to your local participating T-Mobile store to drop off your tablets and/or cellphones. Make certain to remove all of your personal information.
There are no limits as to how many devices you can recycle so encourage friends and family to donate as well. Anyone can participate even if you are not a T-Mobile customer.
