CellForCash.com will give customers the choice of earmarking the proceeds of their old cell phone sales to victims of Hurricane Katrina.

CellForCash.com, a website that pays cash for old cell phones, announced today it will give customers the option of sending 100 percent of the proceeds of their cell phone sales to help victims of Hurricane Katrina.

In addition, the company said it would add $1.00 to the value of every handset when the proceeds are directed to the CellForCash.com Hurricane Relief Fund.

“CellForCash.com did something similar a year ago to encourage donations for the victims of Hurricane Charley,” said James Mosieur, chief executive officer of RMS Communications Group Inc., the parent company of CellForCash.com. “We were pleased to be able to help out then, and of course we are happy to be able to get involved now.”

Under the program, all proceeds will be donated to the American Red Cross. The Hurricane Relief Program will remain in effect until further notice.

To participate in the CellForCash.com effort, simply visit http://www.CellForCash.com, and click on the Hurricane Relief Program icon.

The money will help rebuild lives and communities in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, which swept ashore from the Gulf of Mexico, killing and injuring scores of people in Louisiana and Mississippi and causing billions of dollars in damage.

The CellForCash.com effort could raise significant dollars for Hurricane Katrina victims. CellForCash.com pays anywhere from a few dollars to well over $100 for the old cell phones that are listed on the CellForCash.com website.

Besides http://www.CellForCash.com, RMS operates a number of other web sites. One, http://www.WirelessFundraiser.com, provides cash to non-profit organizations that collect and send in old cell phones. Another, http://www.RecycleForUS.com, is an environmental initiative that helps companies, government agencies and other groups and individuals collect and recycle old cell phones.

The company also operates the 911 Cell Phone Bank program, through which it donates more than 1,000 cell phones every month to law enforcement and other agencies for use as 911 emergency phones.
