Was Santa Claus good to you this year? (“Since when ISN’T Santa good to you…” “Hush, Mama, that was a rhetorical question… Just let me finish!”)
Did you get a new cell phone or tablet for Christmas? So you’re looking at the new one and the old one looks pretty shabby but it still works…. Did you know you can DONATE that old cellphone or tablet, in working order or not, and get a tax credit? That sure would be better than trashing it or selling it for $20 somewhere.
There is an awesome non-profit group called “Cellphones for Soldiers” that will take old cellphones and tablets and turn them into phones, tablets and minutes for our soldiers!
Cell Phones For Soldiers began in 2004 as the idea of two patriotic kids who wanted to give back to the men and women who dedicate their lives to protecting us each and every day. To date the charity has provided more than 300 million Minutes That Matter to our troops serving around the world, and it continues Helping Heroes Home via emergency funds that so far has assisted more than 3,100 veterans and their families.
You can get details on their main website or go to their Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/JoinCellPhonesForSoldiers.

It’s another feel-good organization….
So, for now… K.I.S.S… and be good to each other….
