Optus Unveils Charitable Donate Your Device Program

Optus has announced Donate Your Device which invites everyone to donate unused or old smart phones to the people who need it most.

Having constant on demand access to a smart phone is part and parcel for so many people’s daily lives. However sadly, many Australians are being technologically left behind without a smart phone or any available internet connectivity.

Doing their part to alleviate this problem, Optus invites everyone to help bridge the digital divide through Donate You Device, a free in-store service.

While your old phone may be destined for the bin or set to collect dust somewhere in the house, a donation of a spare handset could help connect loved ones, provide access to education, open up the possibility for new job opportunities, and help turn a corner in someone’s life.

Launching with charity partner Good360, Optus will pair the smart phone with a Donate Your Data SIM, which includes unlimited calls and SMS on an Optus prepaid SIM so the person receiving is ready to go.

All you have to do, is simply bring a phone into an Optus store and the team will facilitate the donation, clearing any data to prepare it for its new home.

Optus’ managing director, Matt Williams, said, “Optus is proud to be working with our customers to enable Australians in need to power their potential by providing them with the essentials required to thrive in a digital world.”

All Australians deserve to be connected and Optus and Good 360 are delivering on enacting real change in the community.
