Wanted: Gently-used laptop computers (Grand Rapids)

http://grandrapids.craigslist.org/wan/764569789.html

The Grand Rapids Digital Inclusion Project is running a pilot program and we’re looking for gently-used laptop computers. Your contributions will be given to individuals in need, looking to learn computer skills, and improve their lives with technology.

We’re looking for gently-used modern laptop computers that are wireless capable, preferably with a wifi card included. Any parts that you have to offer would also be appreciated. Please email us with a description.

We will wipe your computer’s data clean, uninstall the operating system, and all applications (we will be running Ubuntu Linux and open-source software).

Since we aren’t a 501c3 organization (yet), your contribution will not be tax deductible, (but know that it is going directly to a person in need in your community).

For more information, visit https://forgr.wordpress.com.

Let’s see what happens…
