Why I need used phones

Virtual reality is very simple to experience. All you need is a virtual reality headset and a smartphone capable of supporting a virtual reality headset. If you want to donate money that will go toward buying headsets, phones, and hiring professionals to train teachers to use VR technologies, go here.

However, it is much more likely that someone will turn in a used smartphone than dish out $200+ per phone for me to buy, so I made phone donations an option, simply because used phone donations will help save your money and help me reach my goal of empowering Austin Creek Elementary School with Cardboard Learning faster.

How to donate a used smartphone

  1. Check if your smartphone is compatible with the virtual reality headsets I will be providing
  2. If you do NOT see your smartphone on the list, follow this guide
  3. If you do see your smartphone on the list, follow these steps for Android or these steps for iPhones to reset your smartphone to factory settings so I will be able to download the software needed to compliment VR headsets. By following this step, you are assured that your personal data will not be compromised. If you have any issues, please don’t hesitate to get in contact with me!
  4. Once the smartphone has been reset to factory settings, shoot me an email at donation@cardboardlearning.io and I will drop by to pick it up.
The donations will be made to the Austin Creek Parents’ Club, which is registered as a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization (Fed ID# 68-0457336). Contributions are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.
