Cell Phones for Soldiers

(Fox) - Soldiers are ringing in the holidays with some special gifts two kids packing up cell phones to donate to troops.

According to cellphonesforsoldiers.com, after hearing a news report about a local soldier who had an expensive cell bill two kids decided they wanted to do something to help. Brittany and Robbie donated their piggy bank money, collected snack money from their friends at school, and with $21.00, they went to the bank to open an account.

The phones values are transferred into prepaid phone cards for soldiers. The goal is to help soldiers serving overseas call home by with out massive cell phone charges.

Through donations and the recycling of used cell phones, thousands of calling cards have been given to soldiers around the globe. Anyone wishing to contribute should drop off their old cell phone to any AT&T store nationwide.
