Make-A-Wish Foun­da­tion calls for peo­ple to re­cy­cle old phones

Bray People - - 2008 Review -

NEW mo­bile phones were left in stock­ings all over Wick­low this year, and the Make-A Wish Foun­da­tion has the per­fect way for their own­ers to dis­pose of their old phones.

The foun­da­tion is call­ing on new own­ers to re­cy­cle their old for wishes. Make-A-Wish and Green­cy­cle are aim­ing to col­lect 100,000 phones and ink car­tridges through­out Ire­land by mid 2009 to help raise funds for the char­ity whose mis­sion is to grant wishes to chil­dren in Ire­land aged 3 to 18 years of age liv- ing with a life threat­en­ing ill­ness. The Re­cy­cle for Wishes ini­tia­tive was launched by Ire­land’s golf­ing hero Padraig Har­ring­ton, who lives lo­cally in Rath­michael and is Make-A-Wish Am­bas­sador.

So if you re­ceived a flash new phone for Christ­mas, or have just changed the ink car­tridge in the of­fice or at home, send your items freep­ost to Make-A-Wish Re­cy­cling Ap­peal, FREEP­OST, Berke­ley House, Ashbourne, Co.Meath or call the Make-AWish Re­cy­cling Ap­peal on 1890 890 890 for a col­lec­tion bin for your of­fice and help turn your old phones and ink car­tridge’s into wishes.
