About TECHIE for the KEIKI:
Dear friends: This came to me while sipping my morning coffee as to how I can make a difference, even though small, in this time of need to serve our community. I am asking your help for this project: TECHIE for the KEIKI.
Basically, I am re-purposing your old laptop for a keiki so he/she will have a tool (other than their parents’ smart phones) to do online learning/schooling at home during these uncertain times. Some homes don’t have computers. Let’s take advantage of Spectrum’s free internet initiative so these keiki’s can continue to learn with their parents at home through distance learning. Keiki is staying home for the rest of the school year, and your old “tech” is just collecting dust. Your kokua is needed.
If you have an older laptop (at least Windows 7 or Mac) that you are no longer using, I’ll re-purpose it. Laptop should be able to boot to desktop. Includes charger. Also, if you’re thinking about upgrading in the next few days, I’d like to re-purpose it for the keiki’s. As a bonus, I will help you migrate your data from your old computer to the new one for FREE. I will securely wipe out your data, as well as backup up your data to a USB thumb/hard drive (which you provide) before the re-purposing process. Everybody wins! Laptops are preferable since I’d have to find external monitors, keyboards, mouse, etc. and I really don’t have much space for it.
We can work on details for pick-up/drop off. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, please checkout our Facebook group page, TECHIE for the KEIKI. #TechieForTheKeiki
