Phones For Good

Received this email below from Phones For Good a few weeks ago...

PhonesForGood.com is an online retailer of cellular phones dedicated to raising money for nonprofit organizations. By asking your staff and supporters to purchase their next new cellular phone and plan through our website (from AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, Nextel, T-Mobile), your organization will earn $40.00 - $50.00 for each new purchase.

Over 90% of your members and supporters already own a cellular phone and will buy a new one within the next 18-24 months. Why not buy their next phone in a way that benefits Central Dallas Ministries?"

Here's all you need to do to get started:

1. Visit www.phonesforgood.com to sign-up your organization (takes about 2 minutes).

2. Inform your members and supporters (through your email, newsletters, website, flyers, etc).

3. Receive checks quarterly from purchases made by your supporters.
So, yes, I registered -- I'm a sucker for this kind of stuff. I have definitely wasted lots of time on "2 minute" exercises like this.

Like this, for example.

(sigh)

I'll let you know if I ever get a check...
