MaxBack.com to Donate $11 Per Exchange to Veterans in Honor of 11/11/11
ERIE, Pa., Nov. 11, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — MaxBack.com, a leading buyback program that pays consumers top-dollar for their new or gently used small electronics, is donating $11 to the Rocke Solid McShane Foundation for every cash-for-product exchange made now through November 30. This Veterans Day, MaxBack is urging gadget-lovers to turn in their old cell phones for cash and help a veteran in need.
Rocke Solid McShane Foundation (RSMF) is a national nonprofit that serves veterans with posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The foundation’s flagship program, Service Pets for Service Vets(TM), trains and certifies service dogs and pairs those dogs with veterans who have PTSD — all free-of-charge.
“This promotion is very important to MaxBack, and its one of the coolest we’ve ever done. Our participants can make a little money while we give $11 to Rocke Solid,” said MaxBack Program Coordinator Michael Ryan. “That’s a great gift to give on Veterans Day.”
The National Alliance on Mental Illness defines PTSD as an anxiety disorder that can develop after a person is exposed to a traumatic event. It affects an estimated 15 to 20 percent of veterans.
RSMF Executive Director Holly Dhaliwal said, “A study at Walter Reed [National Military Medical Center] shows that PTSD patients with service dogs were 40 percent less dependent on their medication and better able to maintain their recovery goals compared to patients without service dogs.”
To take advantage of MaxBack’s 11/11/11 promotion, visit Maxback.com through November 30, 2011 and use the code “DONATE2VETS” when prompted during checkout. For every cell phone, iPod, video game or tablet exchange valued at $100 or more, MaxBack will donate $11 to Service Pets for Service Vets.
