Cell Phones for Soldiers has donated hundreds of calling cards to be placed into my care packages.
It is run by a fantastic family who has kept it very grassroots while providing so much to our military members.
I love this organization.
I think this is a fantastic organization that not only helps our troops but improves our environment as well! How fantastic!
Great organization and a great cause. CPFS made disposal of our old phones easy and we're glad it benefits our service members.
Cell Phones for Soldiers is an outstanding organization! They bring one if the biggest joys in this world, connection back home when you are on the front lines. I appreciate everything that they do!
I would have appreciated being notified when my soldier received his phone card(s). You could raise additional funds by embedding a hyperlink into the "reply signature" from the card, or phone, asking for donations, I.E. "sent from my blackberry" or "sent from my verizon phone".
I requested phone cards for my husband, who is stationed in Afghanistan. He received the cards pretty quickly - less than 60 days from the date they were requested. He was very grateful, and I am too, because it means our son and I get to talk to him more often!
I am a soldier and the need for my soldiers to be in touch with thier families is the most impotant thing for morale. the calling cards that were sent to mr for my soldiers were most apreciated.. Thank you for helping me keep my soldiers in touch with thier families abroad Great Job
One Word: Awesome. :) All i had to do was fill out an application for a calling card to be sent to my husband in afghanistan. Simple! One of the most important aspects of maintaining soldier morale is communication with their families, and they provided me with a way for us to contact eachother. brilliant.
I think it's a great thing, but it didn't work for my soldier. He never recieved any of the phone cards that were requested for him. Wonder why?
