In 2001 Verizon started using recycled cell phones to help victims of domestic violence and since its beginning they have collected over 8 million phones and awarded more than $10 million in grants to agencies and organizations to help bring about awareness and support to victims of domestic violence. We the people can now help to bring about a change.
The next time you go in to upgrade your device remember to donate your phone to the HopeLine. Also if you know anyone looking to get a program or business started that has been a victim of domestic violence, Verizon is giving Entrepreneurship Grants to help. The grants range from $1000 to $5000 and can be used for virtually anything to launch a business, from office equipment to tuition for business courses.
