Working PC to giveaway

Recommended Posts

Hi, I live in Makati and have a 17 inch Asus pc to giveaway but I cant find any charity that accepts pc's..... even though in this time I would expect there would be some worthy ones, or schools etc

Pc is in excellent working order although I have removed the hard drives so they need replacing.

Would be happy if anyone has a contact  so I can give this pc to a worthy cause/destination.

 

I recently boxed up about 10 boxes of books and gave to a charity that operates a kids reading programme in Nueva Ejica.

Whenever I replace my laptop, the old one is mailed to Bruce's home address in Florida.  The laptop is then included as part of his regular balikbayan box shipments to Catbalogan, Samar.  If the pc or laptop is already in the Philippines, Bruce can provide you with a local mailing address in Samar.  This was the arrangement for one of my donations

If you haven't off loaded the computer yet I have a contact who is a teacher for the Mangyan tribes of Oriental Mindoro. Due to covid and the vulnerability of the Mangyan she is trying to set up remote teaching.  I'm in the process of trying to get a refund from Air Juan and all the proceeds will be going to try to kit out a classroom. I know they'd be very grateful as the Mangyan are pretty much ignored by the Government.
