This holiday season Virgin Mobile Canada’s RE*Generation is doing some good as they raise $200,000 for at-risk and homeless youth programs in Canada. For a limited time you can purchase a special Virgin Mobile Canada RE*Generation Samsung Galaxy Ace II x and $15 from the sale of the phone will go directly to the Virgin Unite RE*Generation movement.

In Vancouver, the RE*Generation movement has already shown its commitment with helping the Broadway Youth Resource Centre and also Project Limelight, including backing from serious star power: Sir Richard Branson, Vancouver actor and Glee star Cory Monteith, and Bedouin Soundclash.

To promote the movement and this fantastic phone deal that supports local causes, Virgin Mobile Canada has offered up a Samsung Galaxy Ace II x for one lucky Miss604 reader (value $199 CAD). This Android (4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich) smart phone has a 4.0″ WVGA full touchscreen, 5 MP camera, Samsung TouchWiz for Android, and the added bonus of $15 going to RE*Generation supporting at-risk youth programs — right here in BC.

Here’s how you can enter to win:

  • Leave a comment on this post (1 entry)

RT to enter to win a Samsung smartphone supporting @VirginUnite RE*Generation from @VirginMobileCan & @Miss604
