Thanks for all the kudos and support surrounding our 5000th computer given away. What a good time we had Sunday afternoon. Could you believe how wonderful Eohippus sounded?
There is still more time to bid on the fancy new laptops. The Acer Aspire S3-391 valued at $930 - bid is $750 at noon 5/2/2013. The MacBook Pro valued at $1580 has a bid of $1250 at noon 5/2/2013. Please call if you want in on this very good opportunity. Remember graduations are coming.
Bidding closes at Noon Saturday May 4, 2013.
Please call and I will do my best to make your bid count. 303-989-2832
Also please consider having your neighborhood, church or organization host an electronic recycling drive. Tech For All can use the equipment and we do make some money on the recycling. And the environment could use the help. Please call for the details, we have the protocols set up to do a drive effectively.
Once again may I say, without all of you T4A doesn’t happen and we are not slowing down. Please tell everyone that we need all the computers we can find and what we do with them.
Remember our Independence Party is June 29, 2013 at Noon.
Lots of Love,
Looking back and thinking forward-
Rose was asked "Why do you do Tech for All?" Her Answer:
“I want to help...
The Tech for All foundation thrives through the energy and leadership of Rose Keating and the support of our many devoted sponsors, angels and volunteers. Please patronize our sponsors and thank our angels and volunteers when you see them. Consider joining us in this worthwhile mission.
In 2006, Tech for All developed a relationship with Amy Oaks, Ph.D., then Principal of Goddard School. Computers were given to each student needing one at the school.
LHS... In 2011, Amy Oaks, now at Littleton High School , at Littleton Boulevard and Broadway, and Tech for All began collaborating to get computers to the Littleton High School students. As of the beginning of October, 32 students have computers! Principal Oaks had a great idea Thank you - GO LIONS!
Bradley... Word of these projects spread. Stephen Wera, Principal of Bradley International School , at 3051 So. Elm, joined in the fun! Students there began receiving computers in October 2011. Thank you Principal Wera - Yeah EAGLES!
...Let's do it again!
Recycling Electronics Collection, Saturday October 29, 2011 9:00am - 12:00pm
Give us your tired, your unused, your huddled electronics yearning to be recycled.
If you want to donate stuff but can’t come on October 29, please call Chris Citron (Yale ‘71), 303-777-2242 or email her at BookingDenver@msn.com .
Please bring your donations, whether or not you want to stay and volunteer! Donation receipts will be given. Tech for All ( a local non-profit organization) rebuilds computers and gives them to needy people, after properly clearing off any data on the computers. All materials will be properly recycled locally (not sent overseas).
Our collection event last May was a great success and we collected over two and a half tons of electronics that will not be dumped in landfill!
Volunteers are needed! Families are welcome. Volunteers will help unload donated equipment from donors' cars (including computers, laptops,keyboards, monitors,televisions, cell phones, chargers, etc.),and will help write receipts and sort materials.
This is a project of the Colorado Yale Association, the Ivy Plus Leadership Forum For Denver, and the St. John’s Cathedral Green Team, in conjunction with Tech for All.
Location: Tech for All, 1709 S. Acoma Street (Just west of South Broadway and north of Evans)
