If you received a new cell phone from Santa or are upgrading to a smartphone, think about donating your old phone to an abused women’s shelter. In Marin, you can donate your older phones to MAWS (Marin Abused Women’s Services) and they in turn will give them to their clients.
Many of these women flee their dangerous homes with little more than the clothes on their backs. Their old cell phones are a link that their abuser can use to locate them. Having a new cell phone gives these women a chance to make one step forward to greater independence and a new life.
Now go run!
