LOOK under your bed, in your desk drawer or in the cupboard and you'll probably find old mobile phones.
Instead of leaving them or throwing them away, pass them on to the Caboolture branch of the Leukaemia Foundation as part of the Gift 4 A Cure Campaign.
With the backing of Memo Group, the branch is collecting old mobile phones to raise money for patient support and to help with research into leukaemia and other related blood cancers.
"We hope to raise $50,000 to further research and provide more accommodation for patients and their families when undergoing treatment," branch president Jane McMillan said.
"Every household has four to six unused phones sitting there.
"We'd like for everyone to pass on these phones and we're hoping to collect as many as we can by Christmas."
Memo Group CEO Sean Memery is more than happy to support the Caboolture branch and the work they do.
"We collect and recycle old mobile phones, which are completely wiped and made secure and we send them overseas," Mr Memery said.
"It's a campaign which is successful worldwide and we run operations with schools where we have given iPads and in this case the Leukaemia branch in Caboolture will receive a rolling donation for the number of old phones collected.
"It doesn't matter if the phones don't work, they just need to be old mobiles and ready for collection."
Branch members have been busy dropping off delivery bags to homes. These will be picked up on Saturday (December 1) and collection bins are available for businesses, schools and shops wishing to take part.
C&W Electrical on Michael Ave has come on board.
Phones can also be delivered to the Caboolture branch office (shed 18, 110 Morayfield Rd).
Alternatively you can drop your old phones into the collection bin at the upcoming twilight market at Centenary Lakes on December 7.
For further information phone Jane on 0422584080.
