Bring any mobile phone, battery or accessory, irrespective of carrier, into your local Telus store, and they'll plant a tree for FREE!
Starting next week I will be advertising drop-off locations around Nanaimo for broken and unwanted phones. Help my campaign to plant a new forest in BC this year!
For those of you reading this outside the Regional District of Nanaimo and inspired to lend your support by dropping off your old phones at a Telus location, please drop a comment that you did so and I will add your donation to the total count.
It got tired of doing nothing, of thinking that the problem was too big, that I couldn't do anyhting to make a difference, and I just started, took a stepforward, connected with other like minded people and it flowed from there. It's funny when you realize how much helping others helps yourself, in ways you would never imagine ;)
I got tired of thinking a problem was to big to change. I decided to something, instead of nothing. When you focus just on hunger, you soon realize that fixing the whole problem is a long term goal, but feeding one person one meal is easy, and doable.
