Hope Phones

http://hopephones.org

We created the Hope Phones campaign in 2009 as an innovative way to fund the global efforts of Medic Mobile, our parent organization that advances healthcare in 11 countries with mobile technology. Half a million cell phones are discarded in the United States every day and pollute the environment with tons of plastic and persistent toxins like lead, nickel, beryllium, and cadmium. Cell phone recycling through Hope Phones reduces hazardous waste in our communities responsibly, while providing a real public health benefit abroad.
If Hope Phones can recycle just 1% of disposed phones each year, we can outfit 1 million health workers, improving the lives of 50 million people.

The Weightless Project

http://weightlessproject.org

The Weightless Project was launched to fight two parallel causes - obesity on one hand and hunger and malnutrition on the other. By converting calories burned into usable funds using cutting-edge technologies to track activity, the proceeds generated by those losing weight will be used to help those who need the extra pounds to survive. Currently the initiative is partnering with three devices – Jawbone, Fitbit and Basis, and looking to collaborate with other international health and fitness brands. Officially supported by Deepak Chopra, The Deepak Chopra Foundation and Health 2.0, this initiative is on its way to making the world a healthier place.
