Ads-Up Laptop Fund

$2,760 of $14,000 goal

Raised by 40 people in 7 months
Created January 11, 2019
Ads-Up

The Ads-Up Refugee Network is supporting hundreds of Manus and Nauru refugees who are being resettled in the USA. One of our projects is focused on providing affordable laptops, which is a real investment in a refugee's future success. 

An affordable laptop allows young refugees to study, improve their English, develop computer skills and apply for better-paying jobs. 

Most refugees live paycheck to paycheck and struggle to save – this can help make the difference. 

The laptops we purchase range from $270-330 and we can also help direct donations of second-hand laptops (email Contact@Ads-Up.org). 

Please chip in $30, $50 or $120 today to help us reach our goal of providing a laptop to every resettled refugee who requires one!

Ads-Up is an Australian, volunteer-run refugee support network in the USA for former Manus and Nauru detainees.

UPDATE: We've got eight more refugees on our waitlist for a laptop which will help them apply for jobs, study online courses and keep in touch with family.

We're asking our supporters to share our fundraiser online and consider chipping in $20, $50 or even $100 to help us reach $4,500 so we can get these laptops sent this weekend!

From Dallas to Kansas City to Atlanta to Denver to Ohio, we can make a real difference for these newly arrived refugees!

We've sent off our first three laptops!

One has been sent to a young woman in Houston, another to a young man in Chicago, and another to high school student in her junior year in Florida.

Thank you so much to our early donors for making this possible!

Please share this with friends over email to help us keep the momentum going!
