Supporting Starship's National Air Ambulance
In just six years over one million phones have been donated to
the appeal. This has raised over $2.3million for the Starship
National Air Ambulance Service!
The Starship National Air Ambulance flies top medical experts to
life-threatening emergencies anywhere across the country. A highly
trained team of specialists stabilise the children to allow them to
be brought safely to Starship Hospital where they can receive the
very best of care that they need. The Starship Foundation is
committed to fundraising $1.5million annually for this life-saving
service. Learn more about the Starship National Air Ambulance
What happens to the old phones?
The mobile phones that are donated which still have a useful
life get refurbished and resold into third world
countries. There are a small number that can no longer be used and
these are broken down and recycled in an environmentally
friendly way. Read more about how the
Mobile Phone Appeal is helping save the environment.
