Want to donate an old laptop?

My friend Avni, who works tirelessly and without pay on behalf of Kids on Computers (http://www.kidsoncomputers.org), a 501(c)(3) non-profit, asked me if I had any more laptops to donate to her organization. If you’ve been dreaming of upgrading to Windows 8, this is your big chance/excuse. [Sadly, the children who get these machines will not be able to enjoy using Windows 8; the machines are wiped and installed with Linux.]

Here’s what Avni says…

Kids on Computers is seeking laptops for an elementary school in Molcaxac, Puebla, Mexico. The laptops must have 512MB RAM, include a power adaptor and be in working condition. We’d like to have the laptops by July 14th as we have a group of students from Mexico visiting the US leaving to go back at that time and they can transport them back.

Please contact Avni Khatri at avni@kidsoncomputers.org immediately if you have equipment you can donate.

  1. Does “working condition” include the battery? I have (& have had) many old laptops that work perfectly as long as they’re plugged into the wall. The battery is typically the first thing to go.

  2. No – as long as you have the power adaptor, it’s okay. Email me if have laptops, and I’ll send you an address where you can ship them. Thank you!
