If Pat is Santa, I’m an elf. I’ve been given four prizes to give away on this here blog in exchange for promoting the Jack and Jill Foundation who recycle mobile phones. Just to note Jack and Jill didn’t provide the prizes but a supporter of theirs and it was thanks to Santa that they contacted me about this.
What does the Foundation do?
The Foundation provides early intervention home respite to families with children up to the age of 4, with severe neuro developmental delay and palliative conditions requiring extensive medical and nursing care at home.
Here’s the deal. For everyone that donates one or more mobile phones to the charity, they’ll be entered into a draw for three prizes (First, second and third out of hat) – a Nokia 5220, a Voyager 815 bluetooth headset and an Elextex rubberised portable keyboard for phones. The blogger who gets these people to donate phones will also be entered into a draw for a Nokia 810 Internet Tablet.
Donating a phone is dead simple as you drop the phone and charger (if you have it) in a jiffy bag and send it to their freepost address: The Jack and Jill Mobile Appeal, Freepost, Ratoath Road , Finglas, Dublin 11
If you collect 10 phones they’ll even send a courier to you.
So if you’re a blogger/run a blog, send your readers this way (this is not a link building thing so nofollow away) making sure they have you as the referer (as in “JohnnyBlogs sent me”) and you could win a Nokia 810 Internet Tablet and if you want to donate a phone leave a comment on this post with the make/model of the phone you’re donating and which blogger sent you this way. Yes, you can donate a phone and refer your own blog so you can be in two draws.
It’d be interesting to see which blog sends the most referers. Game on blogger people!
hmm, not up to my usual standard but still…..:-)

Great work Damien! I should be able to collect a nice number of phones from UCC members. They are a little shy about leaving comments. So I will collect the phones early in the new year and put a list of names up here. I’m happy out with my iPhone so no need to include me in any draws. Thanks for the oppurtunity to do some good. Happy Christmas & New Year etc.

Thanks again for the opportunity to do some good in ’09 Damien.
