iPod Pharmacy

iPod® Pharmacy
Is your old MP3 player really doing its best work in a drawer?

Send it to us! We will clean it and donate it to a music therapist for use with their patients.

Imagine giving it to someone spending hours waiting for treatment, or sitting on dialysis.  Your old music player can help take their mind off things and allow them to lose themselves in their favourite music.
