I'm getting a new digital camera as a present. Any ideas for where I can donate the old one?

Asked by answerjill (5654 points ) December 4th, 2011

First, please do not suggest that I donate the camera to you! I would like to donate it to an organization. The old camera is fully-functioning, but my new one will have more up-to-date and advanced features.

Wow, never thought of that. I usually consider myself lucky when I can just recycle electronics.
(I have a few operational but similarly obsolete cameras in a drawer. I saved them mostly because I just might think of something to do with lenses, and there they are… they have been there for a while, though.)

Would the Goodwill/SalvationArmy take a donation like that?

Call some local charities that you support and ask if they could use it. The Humane Society probably could.

Battered womans shelter. They can use it to document abuse.

That’s a great idea! I never thought to do something like that although I’ve only had 1 camera and it’s 5+ years old.

@sevenfourteen – This camera came out in 2005, but with the way technology moves so fast these days…

I definitely agree that the technology has vastly improved, I just have no use for a new one. I’ve brought mine to Central America twice and it gets the job done. I also rely on others for pictures since we have facebook and whatnot.

Local charity could definitely use it, contact them.
