Hello Bestbuy,

        I just though that this would be the best place to propose this idea because the email on the bestbuy website was only for the store. I am working on creating a charity (Tech for Tots) that donates old and recycled phone to children during long term hospital stays. This would target families of lower economic brackets who may not be able to afford phones for their children. This helps the children remain occupied and connected during their hospital stay. We are working with multiple hospitals in the Cleveland area who are interested in the program, the only issue is that to begin the program, we need to have phones to donate. I noticed that there are many phones that are being recylcled through the Bestbuy Electronics Recycling program that could have much more use through a program like this. I was hoping that you might be able to donate some of those recycled phones to this program.

 

      If you have any more information about the program, just send me an email. This is just a basic summary of what we are trying to do.
