Phones for Fearless: Phase II

Read all about it: Donate phones to Fearless like Fearless Donors Carla and Anita from Rain ZinePhones for Fearless is far from finished! With all the great gifts people got over the holidays, we know there will be some used phones, cameras, and other mobile devices kicking around looking for new homes, and we stand ready to provide them!

Donate your old mobile phones to help DTES artists share stories, and tap into life, jobs & family.

How can you help?

  1. Your used mobile phones – preferably with video, camera, wi-fi
  2. Cash donations (* tax deductible) or new phone donations
  3. Conversation – tell your friends on your blog, twitter, etc. – post a badge, click a Social Bookmarking button to Digg, Reddit, Stumble, etc, this post:

Action Plan:


First, Gather phones!

Next, Drop off the Phones Tuesday, December 30th at:

  1. Well done on this Post – sorry je n’ai pas de Mobile Phone – don’t really approve of these frighteningly MODERN & YOUTHFUL devices

    Forget the Stats

    Focus on the Puns and the Coffers

    Happy New Year to her Grace, the Lady ApillihP and the outRAGEously witty EihCrA …. and the persistently interesting Monsieur Metro et Senor FFE

    I remain your obedient servant etc

  2. Happy new year Herr Eagle!!

    Raincoaster – I no longer delight in growing fungi, I have developed a new hobby; watching fruit flies drown themselves in red wine. Hours of fun.

  3. Happy New Year to all! We shall resume our regular posting schedule shortly. As you can see, the tentacles are back in force!

    Philipa, if you’ve got fruit flies in January, you’ve got too damn much fruit and veg lying around.
