Get technology in the hands of students to enhance their learning experience through the internet.
|Computer Equipment for Kids||
I've delivered about 3 computers in the last week, I would like to thank everyone who has donated time and equipment to this effort. If anyone knows of any non-profit organizations which need computer equipment for a training/learning lab please send them my way. I have about 6 workstations that need a home.
Finally got around to creating a flyer for the Computer Equipment for Kids program. If you are a teacher, therapist, baby sitter in Norther Virgina please print this flyer out and show it to someone (principal, helper at daycare center, youth leader, etc). I have a few machines that are ready for a new home.
The Computer Equipment for Kids Program now has a new logo! Big thank you to Mike Bartlett for designing it.
I currently have 4 computers that are ready to roll out the door, if you know any families with children in K-8 Grade in need of a computer please drop me a line: firstname.lastname@example.org
Hopefully everyone is GREAT and gearing up for this holiday season. While you are out buying new gadgets (tablets, laptops, computers, etc) remember your old devices can be used by someone else! The Computer Equipment for Kids Program will take all your old USABLE gadgets (tablets, laptops, computers, etc), refurbish them (which includes formatting/clearing the data off the device), and distribute them to K-6 graders who are in need.
I am currently working on getting the "Computer Equipment for Kids Program" turned into an official "Non-Profit" organization so I can accept donations directly to purchase computer equipment.
If you have anything you wish to donate PLEASE contact me: email@example.com. Please 'share' this out, the more eyes the more donations.
PS. The Computer Equipment for Kids Program is ALWAYS looking for donations, especially the following:
