Cell phones for soldiers

To: EditorFrom: Cyndy Love, BasaltRe: Donating cell phonesI am writing to ask the communitys help in collecting old, unused cell phones for a nonprofit organization that then ships them to AT&T, who in exchange, gives out free prepaid calling cards to our service men and women based overseas. If you or your friends have any old phones sitting around (any brand, any age, any style) please donate. Chargers and batteries are useful but not absolutely necessary. The drop off location will be at the Aspen Highlands Winter Artisans Market on the Aspen Highlands Mall for the next three weekends beginning Friday, Dec. 14. Every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The last market is Dec. 30. If you are unable to make it to the market, please call Cyndy Love in Basalt to arrange for other drop off/pick up times. Check out http://www.cellphonesforsoldiers.com for any more information. Its a great organization, and it really helps out the soldiers stationed overseas be able to call their loved ones at home for free. Nearly everyone has an old cell phone stuck in a drawer or a closet. This is a great opportunity to help someone else and to keep your cell phone out of the landfill at the same time.
