Cell Phones for Soldiers is a registered 501(c)(3) national non-profit organization serving troops and veterans with free communication services and emergency funding. Proceeds from donated phones will be used to purchase calling cards for our troops. The organization was created in 2004 by Brittany and Rebbie Bergquist of Norwell, MA. After reading a story about a soldier who ran up a huge phone bill calling home from Iraq, these two teenagers decided to help out. They started by opening an account with $21 of their own money. To date the program has collected more than 7.5 million cell phones and provided military personnel with more than 90 million minutes of pre-paid calling cards. The program’s main revenue stream comes from the recycling of used cell phones. Currently there are more than 6,000 Cell Phones for Soldiers collection sites across the country. The program not only helps our military men and women but also keep toxic wastes out of landfills. Their goal is to provide every US soldier with a way to call home for free.
