Computers for Argentina School

$6,062 of $6,000 goal

Raised by 70 people in 16 months
We would like to purchase 25 laptop computers for a small elementary school in Puerto Iguazu, Argentina. We are a group of Spanish students who will be taking a trip to Argentina next month.

We initially came in contact with the school after a thorough online search of Argentine schools in the area we will be visiting as a class. After finding a few options of schools to serve, we decided that Escuela 711 in Puerto Iguazu was the most deserving of our help.  We were able to get in touch with the director of the school, Miriam Maikowski, who was elated that we had chosen them as our service recipients.

We have been communicating frequently with Ms. Maikowski via social media, email, and telephone, and she is excited to receive our gifts.

We will purchase the computers here in the U.S., then bring them with us as we travel to Argentina. We will then deliver the computers to the school on March 10, 2017.

We want to make a difference. We can't wait to see the faces of these kids as they receive this awesome technological gift!

I, Brett Gustaveson, am responsible for these funds, and I guarantee that 100% of the money raised will go directly to the purchase of these computers and power adapters to make the computers work in South America.

We just hit 50% of our goal thanks to some very generous people. Let's keep it going so that we can purchase all the computers this school needs!

*FYI this fundraiser is not affiliated with Melissa High School or Melissa ISD. We are a private group doing a self-funded trip. Just wanted to make that clear to all :)
