RECYCLE - HELP CHARITY


Recycling Mobiles helps to fund Action for Brazil’s Children Trust’s projects for street children and those at risk

ABC Trust can now raise money by recycling old mobile phones. Large numbers of old mobile phones are lying idle around people’s homes because there is no easy way of disposing of them. They contain a number of harmful materials – magnesium, nickel and cadmium – and they often just end up in landfill sites.

ABC Trust will receive £3.00 per handset from the London-based recycling company XS Tronix.

If you have an old mobile phone for recycling:

Contact ABC Trust offices on 01284 747476 or fax: 01284 747478

Or easier still:

email: info@abctrust.org.uk

ABC Trust is also working with a Norfolk-based company (R&R Supplies UK Ltd) to recycle old Printer Cartridges. So please donate your cartridges. If you have small inkjets then we can supply pre-paid bags for these and all you need to do is place them in the bag and post it back. If you have the larger laser printer cartridges a free collection service by courier is available - but we request that you collect a minimum of 20 cartridges at one time and these can be made up of cartridges and/or inkjets.

RECYCLE IT FOR ABC TRUST

For your printer cartridge bags:

An estimated 7-8 million children are living & working on Brazilian streets (UNICEF)
Destitute & hungry, they are driven to crime, prostitution, selling drugs & begging
Childhood pregnancy, drug abuse & AIDS are rife
Regarded by many as vermin, these children risk being murdered by death squads
ABC Trust supports projects in Brazil’s impoverished north-east region, undertaking vital preventative work with these extremely vulnerable young people and children. Recycling is a key way that the children themselves are able to produce crafts and goods for sale.

In the last THREE years some £200,000 has been made available to develop ABC Trust and provide funding for FIVE different projects for children at risk.

Through vocational workshops, basic literacy training, health care advice, nutritious food, sport and cultural activities - children and young people are given the confidence and skills to transform and improve their lives.

Several hundred children have had their lives transformed by their involvement in ABC Trust projects.

ABC Trust wants to grow and do more ‘wonderful things’ to help children at risk in Brazil have a brighter future. So please join with us by becoming a 'Friend of ABC Trust'. If not a regular standing order commitment, then perhaps a one-off donation?

Good idea, but anywhere to send or drop off in the states or brazil? England seems pretty far and expensive.
