As you all know we were trying to get members to drop off a used cellphone or two when they came to pick up the mosin(s) they got in the group buy. I'd like to personally thank volko and all of their incredible staff for all of the help they provided in collecting the cell phones and sending them off to me to be donated to a local drop off point. Truly a wonderful bunch of human beings who truly practice the nobility that they preach. Thank you from the bottom of my runty black little heart. Such kindness cannot be repaid but for what it is worth, thank you. If firearms are the devil's right hand as society portrays, how can anything be so bad that intorduces you to such wonderful people?

And thank you to the members who either donated phones or made cash donations to the cell phones for soldiers program. We were able to collect 5 phones from LIF membership, five from my son, two from my grandfather and two cash donations. I will be dropping the phones off at a collection point this weekend. Thanks again to everyone who participated and to the incredible people at Volko. What an awesome thing you guys have all done where some fellow off in god knows where, defending your freedoms, can make an extra call home during the holidays. Good show. :)

For fun and giggles when Volko sent the package to me it was addressed to "Rob Saiga" ;D

Good try Rob.

Just like that sweater with the pony on it than grandma made for you, it's the thought (effort) that matters, and has value.
Please don't let it get you down. Never give up - never surrender
Next bit of good works?

Why is it that it is always the couple of us do all the charitible acts and do all the donating. Can some more members step up to help with our efforts? Thanks Rob and PandM for all you do. And Mike(malakaguy) for his continued support. A few more newer members feel free to help out, we could use the additional support.

When I went to pick up my Mosin I searched High And Low for old phones.
I chucked them or turned them in when I upgraded. I had none.

The program is a great program and is something we shoul dinstitute at any and ALL LIF events

Front. You tell your brother we're thankful and grateful that he chose to serve.
Let him know we're doing our best to support him and those he serves with in what little ways we can.

Any way you do it, it's a wee effort and can make a big difference between someone calling home and not calling home.
I'm still collecting if anyone is looking for a drop off and doesn't know of a local one. Have about 30 in a box as we speak. I usually wait 'till the box is full and ship it out.
LIF members have turned over an astonishing number of cell phones for this effort. No reason it has to be an "event" every time. Just drop 'em off, request free mailers (link below), or shout out that you have one or more to donate and someone will pick up the phones.
It's one of those things that cost nothing, requires very little effort on anyone's part and can mean an awful lot to someone serving.
