Help Save a Life With Your Cell Phone

If you've bought a new cell phone lately, your old one may help save a life.

The House of Ruth is collecting cell phones so victims of domestic abuse can call for help in case of an emergency.

This ringing phone can be used not only to talk to your friends, but to save a life.

If a woman is in a threatening position...the phone could be a life line.

Any cell phone will call 9-1-1 if it has a charged battery and has good service.

The phone does not need a paid plan to call.

The phones can not only save lives, but also give abused women reassurance and a peace of mind.

Like this example of a woman who used a cell phone in an emergency.

Since many women recently out of an abused relationship can't afford a cell phone, this can save their life if they come face to face with danger.

If you have an old cell phone that you would like to donate to the House of Ruth call 793-5214.
