ERA is really excited to share an amazing new program from the CNIB Foundation called Phone It Forward. It encourages individuals and organizations to donate their old smartphone to help people with sight loss who need them and get a tax receipt for the value of their phone.
We will be partnering to collect phones to refurbish and donate to the CNIB Foundation. Making a donation is easy: Book your pickup with ERA here, mention you have phones for this initiative, we will come by and pick them up or you can drop them off at our depot and then receive a tax receipt from the CNIB Foundation in return.
All donated phones will be wiped by ERA and then managed by Fixt Wireless Repair, their technology partner, who will wipe them again to the highest data security standards, refurbish them, and load them with accessible apps. The CNIB Foundation will then give them to Canadians with sight loss and provide one-to-one training on how to use them.
Help make CNIB’s dream of putting a smartphone into the hands of every Canadian with sight loss a reality.
