At the mesh social on May 21, we, our guests and the event sponsors, Social Media Group, helped to raise money for Little Geeks, one of our favourite organizations. Ben Lucier, one of our favourite geeks, is very active within Little Geeks, and writes in with news, which we’ve copied below. We admire and support Little Geeks, and hope you’ll think about doing the same.
GTA Children To Receive 100 Free Computers June 12th
Over the past several months, the Little Geeks Foundation staff and Board of Directors have worked hard to lay the groundwork to deliver on our mandate: To enhance the lives of children by providing computers to the underprivileged families within our community.
Thanks to the generous donations of the Foundation’s individual and corporate sponsors, I am very excited to announce that on June 12th at 3PM, The Little Geeks Foundation will hold an event and give refurbished computers, complete with Windows XP and Microsoft Office to 100 families of underprivileged children, free of charge.
This very special event will be held on June 12th from 3PM until 7PM at:
St Andrew’s United Church
117 Bloor Street East
If you have a child in need of a computer, you can visit the Little Geeks Website to register. Once qualified, recipients will be contacted by a member of the Little Geeks staff to attend this event and pickup their free computer. NOTE: Don’t forget to register, you must register to be qualified to receive a computer.
Recipients of our computers are screened and selected in advance for the event, but media and supporters of Little Geeks are also invited to attend this event to learn more about our Foundation’s mission and the environmental and social roles The Little Geeks Foundation serves within our community.
