The Next Best Thing to Being There

A couple of kids -- 12 and 14 years old -- with just $14 between them, started a group that in nine months has raised $250,000 to help America's troops phone home. Brittany Bergquist and little brother Robbie, started Cellphones for Soldiers. They collect old cell phones, sell them to companies that recycle them, and use the profits to buy prepaid phone cards for troops in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Kuwait. (NYT)
