This week, we’re talking about how to donate your cell phone to kids and families who are in need.
A cell phone can go a long way.
It can be a life-saving device.
You can send your phone to a loved one who needs it and to a family member or friend who can’t.
Or, you can donate it directly to a child’s school, community centre or youth centre.
The Globe and Mail is a national newspaper, so this is an issue we cover with regularity.
But for some families in the United States, cell phone coverage is still not as good as it used to be.
So, we thought we’d share some tips for donating your cell phones to children.
Donate your cellphones to your child’s or family’s school If you want to donate to your kid’s or loved one’s school or community centre, make sure you have a way to send it.
Most schools have phones.
In some cases, there’s even a school phone card.
But it’s important to be sure that your school has your phone, and if not, check with your school to find out what the cost of your phone is.
If you’re not sure what it costs, you might consider sending it in an envelope.
You can also use a prepaid card.
It’s the cheapest way to donate.
The Globe and Maaillen, a Canadian charity that helps children and their families, has a great list of free and low-cost ways to donate phones and other electronics.
You don’t have to worry about what kind of phone or device you have.
Donate your phone or tablet to your local community centre and youth centre If your child needs a cellphone or tablet, you should go to a community centre that’s part of your child and family’s care and make sure that the facility is equipped to donate them.
There are a few options: The Ottawa Children’s Hospital has a phone bank.
The Ottawa Hospital for Sick Children has a free mobile phone network.
You may also be able to call the Children’s Aid Society of Ontario to find a phone and tablet bank near you.
When you’re ready to donate, call the Centre for Mobile Electronics and Technology in your area to find the nearest phone or phone bank that can accept the donation.
Make sure that you send the donation to the facility’s safe deposit box.
There’s no need to keep a list of the locations or names of all the donation options available to you.
All you need to do is find the closest facility that can donate your device, and that’s where you should send it to.
Give your phone back to your employer When your cell or tablet is no longer needed, you’ll be able put it in a safe deposit or credit card for your employer to take care of.
This is a good way to give back to a business that needs help.
If your employer doesn’t have a safe, secure location, it may be more convenient for them to donate a cellphone to your school or local community.
It may also make sense for them because it’s a form of support for your kids.
Don’t send your cellphone or iPad to a charity source Your employer should be a safe place to donate mobile phones and tablets.
It can be an employer that’s providing services to the community, such as health care, education, and social service.
This may be a local service, such the Canadian Red Cross or a school.
It could be an organization that is part of the public service or other organizations.
It doesn’t matter.
It should be safe.
If there’s no other way to dispose of the device, donate it to a local charitable organization.
The donation is tax deductible.
You’ll be giving the organization a donation, but it’s still a tax deduction.
You’re giving a donation to a public service organization.
If a private charitable organization, such a school, has no way of disposing of your cellphone, you could donate it as a gift.
For example, you may donate it through your employer’s payroll deduction.
But your employer is a charitable organization that doesn’t need to donate it.
Donor’s card or prepaid card Donating your cell, tablet or smartphone is also an excellent way to get the financial assistance your child, spouse or other family member needs.
For a prepaid cell phone or mobile phone card, use the one-time gift code that you’ll receive if you donate your phone.
The card is good for five years.
When you receive it, you must immediately send it back to the donation location to be reused.
For other forms of electronic gift, make certain that your donation can be easily scanned and that your name and address are included.
It also helps to keep track of your donation, so that you don’t miss a chance to donate when you need it.
You must be 18 years old or older to donate an electronic device
