MOBILE FOR A MEAL

This December we are launching our Mobile for a Meal campaign with OzHarvest. For every mobile recycled over summer we will donate a meal through OzHarvest, Australia's leading food rescue organisation. We will be promoting the campaign on social media, in cinema and through radio advertising. Terms and Conditions will apply.


Help us recycle 70,000 mobile phones by the end of February so that we can deliver 70,000 meals to people in need across the country.

Resources

We are currently creating some handy resources to help you promote MobileMuster during the campaign. Download our poster and check back over the next month for our campaign video and images to use for social media, email and newsletter distribution. If you need any further information contact us.
