Can You Help Ship 20 PCs to Costa Rica for Needy Families?

We didn't expect to be having another fundraiser so quickly, but opportunity knocked and knocked loudly. One of the contributors to our first campaign to raise funds for spare parts informed me that he has 20 working Dell desktop machines that we could have if we paid for the shipping from Florida to Costa Rica.

I immediately contacted a trusted shipper here that I've used twice before, Mike Rappaport of Lomaser, Inc. to get a quote. We were already off to a great start as Mike offered an in-kind donation of $175 by waiving the usual agency fee and giving us his high-volume rate on this relatively small shipment. The total to get these 20 computers to our area is just $300 or $15 per PC.

Thus, our latest fundraising effort, which you can see in the right sidebar or can access by clicking here: Help Us Ship 20 PCs to Needy Costa Rican Families.

As always, there are no overhead charges, so 100% of your donation goes to work. Do not feel you have to give big, either. The minimum contribution is just $1 and it is all very much appreciated.

These computers will be tested and loaded with a license-free OS and plenty of apps for the families to use for Internet access and the kids' schoolwork. All of them are localized with Spanish too.

If you can help out with a contribution, please act quickly as the ship date is August 20th.

Thanks a million!!
