A phenomenal amount of support has been given to the regions devastated by the tsunami by the British public in terms of monetary donations.
I am writing to let your readers know about another way they can help – by donating old mobile phones and printer cartridges.
Eurosource, a company that specialises in running charity recycling appeals, has pledged to give cash to the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) for every mobile and cartridge that is recycled. As this is the umbrella organisation for a number of aid agencies, we feel the DEC is best placed to ensure that the funds raised go to those who need them most.
To find out what types of mobiles and cartridges we can recycle, and how much we will give to the DEC for the items donated, visit www.recyclingappeal.com/tsunami.
If you have a mobile phone or printer cartridge to donate, all you have to do is visit the website or call 08712-505050 and ask for a freepost bag for the Tsumami Recycling Appeal, then simply drop your item in the post.
