Q: How much money can my organization raise through a Phone Drive?

A: The amount raised varies based on the number and type of phones collected.  Organizations that are most successful get all their members involved and encourage members to collect phones from neighbors, friends, classmates and co-workers as well as collecting phones sitting around their own homes.  And the best part is that no one has to open their wallet, they’re just giving what was already lying around their house.  This could be the easiest fundraiser you’ve ever done!

Q: What does Radiance do with the phones it receives?

A: Usable phones are resold; the rest are sold as scrap.  Profits help provide jobs, education, and mentoring for underprivileged youth.

Q: How do you recruit your employees?

A: We partner with reputable, established initiatives that serve underprivileged youth and recruit young men and women based on their referrals.

Q: How can I support The Revolution?

A: By helping to spread the word!  Tell your friends and family about The “Profit-for-Purpose” Revolution.  Send in your own used cell phones.  Become a mentor to one of our young activists or organize a phone drive that also benefits your organization.  Contact us for more information.

Q: Is Radiance a non-profit company?

A: Radiance Metals, Inc., is a social enterprise, a profit-for-purpose company. We harness the power of business to create long-term jobs and provide education for underprivileged youth – something that’s difficult for non-profits to do in a sustainable way.

Q: My phone isn’t that old and I think it’s worth some money.  Can I get paid to recycle my phone?
