The one that’s sitting in your drawer or closet right now?
It could literally save the life of one of the 5000+ victims
who are beaten and abused every day.
A national program called “CALL TO PROTECT” collects used
wireless phones to benefit victims of domestic violence.
CALL TO PROTECT distributes new and recycled pre-programmed
emergency wireless phones FREE OF CHARGE to domestic violence
victims. The Kent Justice Foundation asks that you help
this vital cause. To these women, the phone serves as an
emergency lifeline – one they may not have access to otherwise.
Neither you nor the victim will be charged for any emergency
calls made. All airtime is donated by local wireless carriers.

The program is sponsored by the Wireless Foundation, the
National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, and Motorola.
If you have any cell phones you are no longer using please
email KJF President Rebecca Kohn (firstname.lastname@example.org) to
arrange a time to donate your phone(s). All accessories
that come with the phone are appreciated (batteries, chargers,
Your donation is tax deductible and you will receive a receipt
