Creative Non-Profit

Drop off your old computer at this Charlotte-area non-profit Simputer (USA), and they'll refurbish it and give it to a school, special need student and low-income family.

My girlfriend donated her old laptop there a couple of weeks ago. We took it into the crowded little shop--the walls lined with photos of some of the happy recipients--and the founder showed us around. He told us how he'd grown up in India with little access to technology, and how now he enjoys helping disadvantaged people here in the United States.
