Welcome to the new Phoneraiser Blog! We started this blog so that we may be able to better communicate with our fundraising partners and in turn allow our partners to communicate with us. We plan on keeping all of you informed about the goings on of our company while also keeping you informed about electronics recyling in general.

I would like to introduce myself. My name is Michael Popovici. I have been with Phoneraiser for almost two years now, and enjoy my work. It allows me to see the ins and outs of electronic recycling while working with some really great people. Once in a while you may see other people posting on this blog, but I will be the main author.

My vision of the Blog is to give people more of an inside look into our company and what we do. I feel like the more people see of what we do, the more excited they will be about our program.

What is Phoneraiser? Well, we are a Cell Phone and Inkjet Recycling Fundraiser. Groups, Individuals, basically anyone looking to raise money for a cause signs up with us and collects phones. They send them in using our prepaid FedEx shipping labels and we process them according to our price list. We mail a check to them within 10 days of receiving their shipment (realistically it is usually much sooner). Do people make money with our program? Sure! We send out checks every day. We have had groups raise thousands of dollars for their cause.

Please check out our website and let us know what you think. You can also call us at 1-800-873-8908 to speak to us more about our program.

Check back every so often to see what’s going on with us.

    My daughter’s group is trying to raise money for a trip to Australia this summer. We have gotten all the Sprint stores in our area (5) to put boxes in there stores to collect unwanted cell phones. Belive it or not people buy new phones and just leave them at the stores for them to dispose of. They have phones that they can’t send back and don’t really have a place to put them. A very easy way to get phones. We have also gotten into all the Cingular stores too. I just wanted to share this hint with everyone trying to do this fund raiser. It isn’t that hard if you put your mind to it. Have fun out there.

    I just had a question and wondered if anyone has run accross this problem. When asking for old phone, someone had mentioned about where they are going. They were afraid of them being sent overseas to be used in explosive devices. How can we assure them that this in not where the phones are going?

    Karen, thanks for the question. We do not sell phones to any middle eastern country. All old phones that can not be used on current cell phone networks are broken down for their raw materials. This is done with a high tech incinerator that has zero emissions. The phone is burnt so that all of the metals are able to be extracted off of the phone. There is no way that these phones can ever be used again.

    The phones that are usable are sent to refurbisher’s to be ultimately used in the U.S. cell phone market. Our cell phones do not support terrorism of any kind.
