As a company, you can donate your employees’ old mobile phones to help children in need.

Do your employees have any mobile phones they no longer need? If so, with the help of Swisscom and SOS Children’s Villages, you can launch a collection campaign within your company. It doesn’t matter if the phones work or not, we will sell them and donate the proceeds to SOS Children’s Villages.

How your employees’ phones can be turned into a financial donation.
