Donate your old Smartphone* and help a Deafblind person
Author: Ryan Collins
MobileMuster and Able Australia as part of Deafblind Awareness Week (20-27 June) are urging people to support Australia's deafblind community by donating their unwanted working smartphones* (including batteries and chargers) before 31 July 2015.
The smartphones will be used by deafblind people to stay socially connected using a special Braille machine that connects to the phone via Bluetooth technology. For instance, one client Gina has used this powerful technology to amazing effect. She's written - using a smartphone and tablet - to her Aunt Zia ... in Italy!
Any phones that do not work will be recycled by MobileMuster for resource recovery, none will be sold for reuse, all data will be destroyed.
*Smartphones suitable for use include iPhone 4 and above, Samsung Galaxy S4 and above, LG Nexus 7 and above, Nokia Lumia 540 and above, No cracked screens please. Each phone will be checked to ensure it is working and any data left of the phone will be wiped by MobileMuster's recycling partner TES-AMM Australia.
