This campaign is over! In case you missed it, here’s what happened.
One in every four women will experience domestic violence in her lifetime. A lack of alternative housing often leads women to stay in or return to violent relationships, but providing safe housing gives women in violent relationships the option to leave.
Fortunately most materials in cell phones can be recycled and resold for a profit. Those funds can help domestic violence programs, like Safe Horizon, operate! You collected phones in your communities to support families fleeing abuse. Thanks to everyone who participated!
BrianaI collected 17 phones for the cause, and educated some family and friends on the facts of domestic violence.

Why You Participated
"This is important to me because I have family members who have suffered from domestic violence and I know how serious the issue is. Knowing that I can possibly help women into a safer environment just by turning in some cell phone that were not beneficial to me and were just laying around is amazing. My heart goes out to these women and I hope that these materials will help provide a safer life..." - Darrilyn,

"There are so many scary and awful things going on in the world we live in today, and so it's up to good people to MAKE THE WORLD SUCK LESS! I have been very blessed with a loving family, a roof over my head, more than enough food, and an education, I have always been very comfortable so I need to give and do what I can for those people that do not have these things. I also think that doing good is a chain reaction, if I do good for someone else, then they will be appreciative and feel happy... therefore wanting to help the next person that needs it! I know we have a long way to go- but if I can do my part to make the world a better place, of course I will! A favorite quote of mine, 'There are two kinds of people in the world: givers and takers. The takers may eat better, but the givers sleep better.'"
