Computers With A Cause

After sorting through the mail, I saw DELL was having a huge Black Friday sale. I tossed the flyer into the recycling bin after realizing I didn’t need a new laptop., Then it dawned on me that there were definitely those who could really use one, so I got the flyer out of the trash.

After sorting through the mail, I saw DELL was having a huge Black Friday sale. I tossed the flyer into the recycling bin after realizing I didn’t need a new laptop., Then it dawned on me that there were definitely those who could really use one, so I got the flyer out of the trash.

I wanted to buy all the computers they had, but as it turned out, I could buy up to a maximum of 5. Now all I had to do was find those who could really use a new laptop and had demonstrated a genuine love of learning.

I thought about the Mayor’s office and how they could connect me with our school system who probably knew some great student candidates who would really appreciate the opportunity to have their own computer.

Shortly after hearing about Computers With A Cause, Rusty Griffith, a Commercial Realtor with Carolina One Real Estate, Commercial Division, donated a carrying case, mouse pad and mouse for each laptop. Deborah Anderson-Singleton, CEO of SureVantage Marketing Group, volunteered to assist me in setting up a GoFundMe, Facebook page and video that will enable future laptop give-aways to deserving students. Finally but not least, Melissa Hair of the city’s IT Department purchased thumb drives for the students.

This all started with the donation of my donation of 5 computers, but I know there are so many other children in our community who could really benefit from having personal access to a computer.

There was a time in my life when I would have been thrilled for someone to recognize my curiosity for Computers With A Cause learning and give me such an opportunity.

There's no limit to what one of these students can do when they realize that there are people out there who care about them and demonstrate the fact that their hard work has been recognized and appreciated.

I am excited to see what these young minds will do with these computers and I want to continue to promote “Computers with a Cause” for years to come so that others can join us in that wonderful mission.

Will you join us by donating any amount? Your gift will go a long way in providing access to technology to a young child.
