A YOUNG Rush boy is fronting a major phone recycling scheme organised by Down Syndrome Ireland (DSI).
Adam Cowzer (5), who has previously featured in an advertising campaign by Marks and Spencer, is the face of this year's campaign from DSI.
Following on from the remarkable success of last year's recycle scheme, DSI is calling on the public to root out used mobile phones and iPods that are gathering dust in their homes and offices and donate them to bring joy to kids with Down syndrome this year.
DSI is also asking the corporate sector to support its appeal – companies will be provided with all the necessary material for collections such as holders and any other material they require.
The Down Syndrome Ireland Mobile Phone Appeal is a fantastic way to help children get their hands on a brand new tablet which can have immeasurable benefits for kids with disabilities.
Students with learning disabilities can enhance and develop their communication skills, learn how to adapt to situations, and develop social skills through these amazing devices and now you can help provide them with this fantastic resource.
It takes just 150 mobile phones for each child to receive a new iPad but the benefits they can bring to the life of a child are manifold.
For full details on the accepted mobile phones models and how to take part please visit either www.downsyndrome.ie or www.fonebank.ie/dsi or alternatively, you can call (01) 8971485.
