The Laptop Challenge

BrainStorm is a tutoring, admissions consulting, and wellness/performance coaching company located in New Jersey. We are on a mission to create oustanding life opportunities for students across the globe. We want every young Brainiac to experience Dominance on Test Day & Confidence for Life.

We often partner with a local nonprofit organization, Oasis in Paterson, NJ, on educational initiatives. With COVID-19 shuttering schools across the county, many of the students that Oasis serves are left without the necessary technologies to access their schoolwork. This amounts to THOUSANDS of primary & middle school children in Paterson whose educational journeys have come to a screeching halt because of covid. 

'The Laptop Challenge' is a call to arms to the people of northern NJ (and beyond) to contribute the priceless gift of education to the struggling families of Paterson. You can help in TWO WAYS:

1. Donate your laptop. If you have a model made in 2016 or later, you can notify our team at [email redacted]
to arrange a safe drop-off or pick-up. We will come to you if it helps!

2. Donate money here. BrainStorm will match a large portion of every donation AND is working with various corporate partners, tech companies, and even the NJ DOE to spread awareness & access cheaper technologies for this initiative. As of right now, your donation of $150 will purchase something incredible: through a piece of tech, you will provide access to incredible life opportunities to an entire family in Paterson.  

We know so many people are struggling during these unprecedented times, so please know that we truly appreciate any and all donations to this cause! THANK YOU for your generosity!! Love, the BrainStorm Team
