Buy computers for under-served students

As a public school student in New York City, 11-year-old Daisy Hampton witnessed stark inequality at school — inequality made more dramatic with the sudden shift to remote learning in March. She knew many of her classmates did not have access to computers or an internet connection at home and worried about what they would do to keep learning. She knew they and other children around the country were missing out on so much. 

She tried to think of a solution. How could she bring students together in a supportive place where everyone can feel safe, secure, and seen? A place where all could be included.

With this vision, Daisy founded Including You, a peer mentorship organization that pairs volunteer student mentors with younger students who experience disparities due to economic disparities, learning differences, or developmental or physical disabilities. She wanted to create a space where students from all backgrounds could laugh and learn together. 

To be as inclusive as possible, Including You hopes to provide an internet-enabled device to any child without access to one. 

With your financial help, we hope to raise $10,000 to purchase computers and mobile hotspots for 25 students in the Mississippi Delta and other areas Including You works with. Any additional funds we raise will be used to buy more devices for students in under-served communities around the country as Including You expands its reach. 

Itemized breakdown of Including You’s plans for the $10,000:
*Lenovo ThinkPad T440 laptop computers — $7,825.00 
*AT&T Mobile Hot Spots for internet service for 20 students — $1,820.00 

Thank you for your consideration.
