Vodafone is giving its users' a chance to get charitable

One way to donate to charity is a mobile recycling drive - but truly committed contributors may also welcome Vodafone's latest announcement.

The network unveiled details of its World of Difference UK programme this week, which it will use to provide 500 people the chance to give something back to their community by getting them to work with various organisations.

For those selected to take part in the two-month programme, their "passion, drive and commitment" will be used to its fullest by their chosen charity and the Vodafone Foundation will offer a £2,500 donation to the group.

Applicants will also be asked to share their experiences using a free mobile and prepaid credit that the operator will provide.

Andrew Dunnett, director of the Vodafone Foundation, said: "World of Difference UK gives people who want to donate themselves - and get paid - the chance to put that passion into practice."

Those looking to donate to a specific charity at work could also start a mobile recycling campaign, which is where envirofone could help.
