I have had several emails from people about getting a job. I need a job too, or to start making an income from this blog! Anyway, in my searches for opportunities to make money- (Reuse- Make Money) here is another opportunity. 

Check out the below links to recycle cell phones and make money (donate, fundraising and more) I listed the states, because I believe you should support local business- but all of the below work nationally.
