Phones for Cancer Research

Children’s Leukaemia & Cancer Research Foundation (Inc.) received a different kind of donation from Westgold Resources Ltd., a top 10 Australian gold producer, recently on Thursday, 31 May. Chris and Danielle from Westgold Resources Ltd donated a large box full of old mobile phones. They were excited to collect these unused phones around their office to be donated to the CLCRF as part of the Aussie Recycling Program (ARP). The ARP donates funds to the Foundation in exchange for receiving old phones.

Not only does this type of giving contribute to child cancer research, but it also stops phones from being placed in landfill and preserves the environment as parts are salvaged and materials can be put back into productive use. Any remaining materials are sent by the ARP for disposal in an environmentally friendly manner with licenced recyclers.

Recently, the CLCRF has been receiving many old phone donations from Perth and even from the Eastern States. Since being associated with the ARP in 2008, the CLCRF has received over $8,000 in donations through the program!

If you or your organisation would like to make a lasting contribution to child cancer research while also helping the environment, why not collect old mobile phones and donate them to the CLCRF?
