Kentuckians DONATE MORE THAN 3,200 PHONES IN 2010 TO VERIZON wireless’ hopeline program

Verizon Wireless and HopeLine Donate 1 Million Minutes of Service and $17,000 in Cash Grants to Help Survivors of Domestic Violence in Kentucky

Louisville, kY – Last year, Kentuckians donated more than 3,200 no-longer-used wireless phones to Verizon Wireless’ HopeLine® program, helping to support and put resources into the hands of those affected by domestic violence in Kentucky.

HopeLine from Verizon puts the nation’s most reliable wireless network to work in the community by collecting no-longer-used wireless phones, batteries and accessories in any condition, from any wireless service provider.  Verizon Wireless and the HopeLine program provide wireless phones and airtime to victims of domestic violence and cash grants to local shelters and non-profit organizations that focus on domestic violence prevention, awareness and advocacy.   Phones that cannot be refurbished are recycled in an environmentally sound way under a zero-landfill policy.

“We are grateful to those Kentuckians who donated their no-longer-used phones to HopeLine in 2010,” said John Granby, president–Kentucky/Indiana/Michigan Region for Verizon Wireless. “Your actions are making a difference in the community and helping to support the families of Kentucky affected by domestic violence.  Thank you.”

Support for Kentucky

The generosity of consumers and businesses who donated in Kentucky enabled Verizon Wireless to award $17,000 in cash grants to local domestic violence agencies.  These agencies included Bethany House Abuse Shelter, Inc. in Somerset, The Center for Women and Families in Louisville and Chrysalis House, Inc. in Lexington.

Verizon Wireless’ National Commitment

Throughout 2010, HopeLine collected more than 1.1 million phones and awarded more than $2.1 million in grants to nearly 450 domestic violence prevention and awareness programs.   Moreover, through HopeLine, Verizon Wireless provided 25,392 phones with a total of 75 million free minutes of service to shelters and agencies nationwide for use by clients, including more than 1 million minutes to organizations in Kentucky.

Since 2001, HopeLine has collected more than 8 million phones; awarded more than $10 million in cash grants to prevention and awareness programs nationwide; and donated more than 106,000 HopeLine phones with 319 million minutes of airtime to victims, survivors and domestic violence organizations.

From Vegas With Love – 007

Had to share this on here when I came across it.  I love anything James Bond (Sean Connery is the best, deal with it!) but I’m still finding myself trying to warm up to Daniel Craig.  What better way to get me to warm up to him then to put him against the Wolfpack?!

That’s right, its 007 vs The Wolfpack!  And by the way, this is no where close to being safe for work due to language.

Doctor Who Season 6 Premiere Date Plus more!!


Finally!  We have a date to mark on our calendars for the return of Doctor Who!  EW.com has revealed that Doctor Who will premiere on BBC America Saturday, April 23 at 9pm ET.

The two-part season opener has The Doctor, Amy and Rory on an adventure over here in the US, where they “find themselves on a secret summons that takes them on an adventure from the desert in Utah-right to the Oval Office in 1969”  Also the two-part has as few guest stars in the form of Mark Sheppard who is playing Canton Everett Delaware III per IMDB, and of course Alex Kingston bring back River Song.

EW also says that the show had record ratings for BBC America and was at top seller on iTunes behind Mad Men and Glee. (I am one of those people, as I only jumped on Doctor Who after the last season aired, mostly thanks to the Nerdist)

Also, check out their first look at the new Doctor Who poster, can’t wait to see a larger version of that!!
