Let's Mobilize!

Recycle old mobile phonesBring your old cellphone to Resene and help kiwi kids all over New Zealand!

SCOUTS NZ have joined up with Starship children’s hospital and Resene to encourage New Zealanders to recycle their old mobile phones.

With more than 15,000 Keas, Cubs, Scouts, Venturers and Rovers resident in almost every community in New Zealand, SCOUTS New Zealand recognised the part they could play in supporting the Starship Foundation’s goal of providing a 24/7 emergency air ambulance service for Kiwi kids throughout New Zealand. Resene has joined the effort making it easy for you to recycle your cellphone at Resene ColorShops nationwide

Funds raised from the Let's Mobilize campaign directly benefit Starship’s National Air Ambulance Service. The funds raised also help SCOUTS New Zealand deliver safe and adventurous programmes and experiences for young people throughout New Zealand.

The “Let’s Mobilize” programme enables Scouts to play a valuable role in a nationwide fundraising campaign for Starship’s Air Ambulance Service, while also increasing their awareness of environmental issues, community giving and having some fun along the way.

Q. What is ‘Let's Mobilize’?
A. ‘Let's Mobilize’ is an environmentally friendly and sustainable nationwide fundraising campaign benefiting both the Starship Foundation and SCOUTS NZ through the responsible, safe collection and recycling of mobile phones.

Q. Do we want CDMA phones?
A. Yes

Q. What happens to Sim cards and chargers?
A. We do not need these, but if some are collected they will be safely and securely destroyed by the recycling company.

Q. What happens to the mobile phones?
A. The phones are recorded, graded and stored before being shipped to countries such as Hong Kong, China or Eastern Europe where they are checked, reprogrammed, repackaged and sold. This has the added benefit of supporting emerging economies that are in desperate need of this technology.

Q. Who will benefit from the money raised?
A. The money raised will be equally divided between the Starship Foundation and SCOUTS New Zealand.

So bring in your old cellphone and help kiwi kids. Remember when you come in, also bring any unwanted old and foreign coins with you for the Heads Up for Kids campaign, which also helps kiwi kids through Lions Clubs nationwide.
