Very proud to talk about our donation of computers to SMS Lighthouse charity, based in Dee Why on Sydney’s Northern Beaches! When I met Josie Parata, CEO of Single Mums Support Lighthouse, she mentioned how she wanted to open up a FREE IT lounge for her clients. She explained how her clients, would use all the data on their phone contracts doing all the online tasks, that others do during their lunch breaks (who am I kidding….on company time).
Josie is one of those people you can’t help warm to immediately and I wanted to help, she showed me a price list of what computers she was looking to purchase, I stopped her in her tracks and explained, this is exactly where GreenTech want to help. Getting good working computers to charities and causes who need them.
My good friends at QMS sport had just donated some used laptops and desktops to us, so we removed all the data off these machines, added a bit more RAM and hot-footed these to Josie for her new project.
With these FOUR machines, Josie’s clients can:
- Educate themselves on the Internet
- Send CV’s and make up online documents
- Pay bills and register for online services
All things we might take for granted but essentials for everyday living that some people find it hard to do. I am still in contact with Josie and want to help out where I can in enabling this project to come to completion. Very happy with this donation, we hope to do more of the same, also connect with new projects.
