Wow the students being awarded computers from GiveLaptops.org have amazing stories.
One student was actually riding his bike to his grandmothers house in another town to use her computer to complete his homework assignments and was falling behind. Now that he has his own laptop he is able to focus on getting his work done at home.
Another student was doing so well in school that her teacher helped her to enroll in a college course at Gateway Community College, but she didn't have a computer to use. Now with her GiveLaptops computer she is able to complete all of her homework assignments and able to do research on the internet.
A third student spoke to his school about trying to become a semi-professional boxer and asked if they could help him continue his schooling even when he was on the road. The school is putting together a curriculum that he can do as he travels around the country through his GiveLaptops.org computer.
We are always on the lookout for laptop donations, laptop bags, or even monitary donations that will help us to do minor repairs such as getting replacement batteries or power cords.
If you have a laptop do donate please fill out the Donate A Laptop form. If you would like to make a tax deductible financial contribution please visit the City Wide Youth Coalition page on Network For Good and write "Give Laptops" into the designation box.
