MomTrends.com posted about HopeLine today. 

HopeLine provides women and families with a vital link to emergency or support services by collecting old phones.

Through this program old phones and phone accessories are collected and distributed to participating domestic violence agencies and organizations nationwide.  These phones are then provided to victims and survivors as they rebuild their lives to help them feel safer and less isolated by giving them a way to call emergency or support services, employers, family and friends. Phones that cannot be reused are recycled properly, and charitable donations in the form of grants are provided to organizations that help victims of domestic violence.
