Below is a note we received Wednesday morning from one of our Laptops for KidZ recipients. The elementary school child’s name was redacted, of course. (A full-sized scan of the letter is clickable below)
Dear Mr. Masons,
Thank you for the computer. You are good at doing your job.
I will take good care of it for the rest of my life.
These laptops make an enormous impact on the lives of the children that receive them. Because we are entirely staffed by volunteers, our costs to place a refurbished laptop still average only $17 or so.
Many of our school partners emphasize how these laptops “level the playing field” for children in low-income households. Coupled with Comcast’s Internet Essentials $9.95/month broadband access package, Laptops for KidZ is a game-changer for a motivated child who is being held back for lack of access to technology.
Please share with anyone you know who might have a surplus laptop to donate.
