EMERGENCY TECH APPEAL! Do you have tablets/laptops…etc hanging around your house that you no longer need for anything other than resting your chin on? People need them! And they’ll be given a lovely wash and blow-dry by professional technicians.
Basically so many young people and families are trying to do schooling at home but have no or limited access to as much technology as some of us, which must be a bloody nightmare to try and get through lessons and work at home.
@yes_outdoors are an organisation that help young people in inner London by introducing them to various activities to improve their lives. They have put out a coronavirus tech appeal asking anyone with a tablet or laptop they no longer need, to donate them to isolated or disadvantaged people in the community. If you have an item you want to donate, just email firstname.lastname@example.org tell them what you want to donate and they will organise someone to come collect it very safely. Today a lovely police lady came to pick up my old laptop and it was all so easy.
Also once you’ve donated your item they will have it wiped and reset (as well as cleaned and disinfected and fixed) so its ready for the family.
They are collecting mainly tablets, & laptops but have gifted some mobile telephones as well. Please send with the chargers if you have them too but any donations are greatly appreciated. Head to their website for more information https://yesoutdoors.co.uk/tech-appeal/
CAVEAT this particular charity is for the area I am in, but I am SURE if you look about there are people in your are looking too (please tag any ones you know below with the area). 💻 📞
*extra edit on this- some people suggesting domestic abuse charities often take phones etc as obviously & sadly people often leave with very little so might be worth checking out your local ones of those too. Xxx
