I posted a craigslist ad yesterday to get rid of a couple of old desktop computers that have been sitting idle in my basement. Despite the machines being obsolete and not having monitors, I got 42 emails overnight from people who wanted them. The responses were all over the place, including:
- the local homeless coalition
- the mother of a disabled boy who wants a computer to write poems
- the Girl Scouts
- some students at a tech college who rebuild computers and donate them to non-profits.
I'd bet most of you have an old computer you aren't using. Thanks for considering donating.
