"Christie, Marcus, their Team Leaders, and everyone that donates their phones are taking action to help health workers around the world. It is inspiring to see what they are accomplishing!" Josh Nesbit
"I first heard about Medic Mobile from my cousin, Christie, who lives in Maine. I found it absolutely fascinating that by recycling my old cell phone, I am helping people all over the world. Learning that this helps get people the medical care they need, I asked my cousin if I could help collect more phones where I live in Massachusetts. Imagine if we did this in every community...how many lives we could save!
"When I heard how we could help people in places where it is hard to get medical supplies, I wanted to get involved immediately. Knowing that I could help so many people by just bringing in my used phone to a box location and that it would help children and adults receive needed medical attention is amazing. I want to help Christie get as many phones to people in need as I can. With the help of our communities, we can save countless lives!"
"I heard about Josh Nesbit last year when I watched the film, 'Every Three Seconds' and my family and I were captivated by his message and immediately wished to aid in his mission to connect people with hospitals in undeveloped areas. I truly believe that this is a cause that has a positive humanitarian and environmental impact. Wth that being said, giving used phones to this organiztion is also an incredibly easy way to help people in impovershied nations."

"I wanted to get involved with this project when I realized that something considered junk, like an outdated or broken cell phone, could be reused to change another person's life. It's important for kids at South Portland High School and everywhere to recognize that we are very privileged, and we should help those not as lucky in any way we can."
