Canadians: Where should I donate a cell phone?
August 30, 2017 5:19 AM   Subscribe

I'm in Canada for the week (Cape Breton Island) and I bought a prepaid flip phone that I never activated. I was wondering if there's some charitable organization I could donate it to? Googling just turns up recycling options, which doesn't seem right for a brand new phone. Any ideas? I could mail it before I leave or drop it off.

Are you flying out of Halifax? Contact Bryony House which is a women's shelter there that will almost assuredly put a free phone to good use.

Cape Breton also have a number of women's/youth health centres that might have a use for them, I just don't know any offhand.

I emailed them, and they want it, so I'll take it to the post office tomorrow. Thanks!
