How Your Junk Drawer Can Support People Who Use AAC

I don’t think there is a house I’ve ever been to that hasn’t had a drawer that looked something like this. If your junk drawer has some old phones (you know, the ones you saved ‘just in case’), consider digging them out and putting them to good use.

The folks at Different iz Good, one of the wonderful groups featured in our post on charitable groups that support AAC, have a cellphone drive program that helps fund the iPhones and iPod touches that they provide to people with significant communication challenges. Besides donating your own old phones, you can also put out collection boxes in schools, places of employment, the library, your gym, etc. Once you have 3 or more phones, shipping them is free.

Get the details at their site along with printable letters, mailing labels, and such.
