Everyone - Give one!!

A refurbished computer - does it have value? Well, that depends greatly on your perspective and based on your need!

Say that you are a single mother doing her best to raise a family on her own and your computer dies on you or you don’t even have a computer? Your children will still need to do research and homework online. You need to stay in contact by email with family members and others who support you emotionally, with child care and other needs. You may need to do job searches online and send out resumes to find a better job than the one that you currently have or to find a job period! The library has limited hours and the line may be long to use their computers. Even when you can get onto the library computer, you are timed out and logged off after only 15 minutes!!  What do you do?

You pray for something as simple as a computer and you would be thrilled to get one that has been professionally refurbished with a genuine Microsoft operating system and Office products like Excel and Word! This is what Smooth Stone Ministries International is all about. Helping those who cannot afford computers, get access to low cost or no cost refurbished computers and notebooks. I endeavor to do this every day and my goal is to help provide one hundred computers to those in need in the end of this year!! That is why I need your support today, so that I may be able to help support and bless those who are in need right here in Georgia and all over the world!! Thank you so much for helping me, help them!!

My goal is to raise $25,000.00 to help provide (100) computers to single Mom’s, low income families, orphanages, churches, missionaries, shelters for abused women and for the groups that support the above. The needs are real and I sadly have to turn away too many requests for help because the funding is just not there. If one hundred families, small businesses, youth groups or organizations who would give a gift of $250.00 or more, we could make this happen!

Please, if you can, everyone – give one!!

Please consider giving today! Your gift of any size matters to those who simply need a chance in life to succeed and a good computer is a necessary tool that many simply need!!
Help us help them!!

I am running the Atlanta Ten Miler this weekend and I would like to raise $2,000.00 to support two projects through Smooth Stone Ministries International.

I am providing five Dell notebook computers each to these two great charities:

North Fulton Community Charities
Rainbow Village

Both very worthy causes!! Your gift of $1, $2, $5 or more per mile would really help fund these two projects.

Thank you so much for your support!!!
Support Jim & SSMI as they run the race!

What an honor it was today to partner again with Brenda Orlans from Hope Roswell, Inc. to provide a refurbished laptop computer to this precious young lady from a local high school. She had been doing here homework on a smart phone!! It wasn't easy but she was determined to do it and she did it!

Your gifts to Smooth Stone Ministries enables me to continue to help good folks like this student who just need the basic tools to excel in life!

Special thanks to Rebecca Kilgore of Atlanta Computer Sales who help me replace the keyboard on this refurbished laptop and to World Harvest Church who are underwriting the cost of this computer!

Thank you for your financial support!!

Happy face time!!

It was good to deliver ten more computers for the second computer lab for MUST Ministries in Marietta, Georgia. I asked Mark Rambeau with Employment Services for MUST to describe how the computers are being used. Here are his words:

"I want to thank you for your donations of twenty personal computers, 10 for each computer lab at our Marietta and Elizabeth Inn locations. MUST Ministries provides both individualized job coaching and group centered learning activities to enhance the marketable skills of those seeking employment. The computer labs are an integral part of what we do: assisting clients with creating and updating their resumes, looking for and applying for jobs on-line, and teaching basic computer skills. The systems we had were inadequate, not just outdated but obsolete and unsupported. The computers you’ve provided us have significantly updated our current working environment; our labs are now more like what our clients will find at their employers. Additionally, you’ve not only helped us to reduce our support and maintenance costs, but decreased MUST’s exposure to viruses and malware as well.

Thank you again for helping us to better serve “our neighbors in need”!"

Your support of SSMI makes opportunities to serve those who serve those in need possible! Thank you for your continued support of what we do.
