Gazelle Donation Drive Offers Consumers a "Cash Free" Way to Support Boston Marathon Attack Victims

All Proceeds Will Be Donated to The One Fund Boston

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - Apr 18, 2013) - Gazelle, the leading consumer electronics website and a Boston-based company, today announced the start of a donation drive to give consumers another way to donate to the victims of the Boston Marathon attack.

Who:
Gazelle, with all proceeds to benefit The One Fund Boston, the victims' relief fund established by Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick and Boston Mayor Thomas Menino.

What:
Consumers can trade-in their used devices on Gazelle.com and donate the value of those devices to The One Fund. In addition to the value normally paid to consumers, Gazelle will donate 100% of profits from the resale of those devices to The One Fund. Eligible devices include any item that can normally be sold to Gazelle, including used iPhones, other high-end smartphones, iPads, iPods and Apple computers.

Where:
Consumers can trade-in their used devices on www.gazelle.com/donate to donate.

When:
Throughout the month of April 2013.

Why:
As a Boston-based company, Gazelle wants to help those in our community impacted by the horrific events of this week. Gazelle's research suggests that roughly half of Americans have an unused smartphone sitting in their homes. This creates an opportunity for consumers to generate a meaningful impact without having to spend cash by donating electronics through Gazelle.
