Our Projects

Our latest initiatives include education, fundraising, and environmental protection.

Chocolates for Charity

We started off by selling chocolates during the holidays to raise money to provide underprivileged students with e-readers.

We've fundraised over $800 from selling boxes of chocolates to friends, families, and neighbors. We are actively continuing to progress in our efforts every week. As our organization grows, we will expand our operations to larger fundraising events.

Recycling Computers

Donating both used and new computers to reduce environmental pollution caused by millions of e-waste every year.

Every year, over 50 million tons of electronic waste end up in landfills and other non-designated sites of accumulated waste. Often times, this e-waste is poorly dealt with. Fumes from decomposing e-waste gets released into the atmosphere and contribute to global warming. We believe it is in our interests as well as for future generations that we take part in helping mitigate damages done to our planet every year. We have started ensuring that functional tech is sent to people who can use it and technology which is no longer operational is properly sent to be recycled at local plants.

We Care Act Education

Our new educational initiative is directed toward helping young or foreign students understand the digital world.

After seeing the increase of online learning as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, we decided that a greater access of the online world would be something all students needed to take advantage of. Therefore, we have begun an initiative to provide youth around New York with laptops and education on digital literacy, Internet safety, and various topics relating to technology.

Your donation can help provide underfunded schools with e-readers and laptops.

Today, nearly 200,000 students attending New York City’s public schools lack funding and resources.

By donating, you can help eliminate a barrier that prevents them from unlocking their full potential. 100% of proceeds from your donations will go toward providing underprivileged children with technological resources such as e-readers, laptops, books, textbooks, and more.

E-waste accounts for 70% of toxic waste production and is incredibly toxic to the environment. The physical composition of many electronics and their toxic chemicals can end up in our ground water and harm people, animals, and the environment. By recycling, you decrease energy use, reduce the waste of valuable raw materials, reduce pollution, and keep our environment clean from toxic substances. In addition, in New York State, it’s illegal to throw your e-waste in the trash. You could be fined $100 for illegally discarding your electronics. For more information about the law, see the Electronics Equipment Recycling and Reuse Act.
By donating your functional and non-functional electronics, not only do you help the environment, but you also help underprivileged students around New York City gain access to electronic learning materials. We repair and refurbish functional electronics and donate them to schools that require more funding and resources.
We will send non-functional electronic devices to reputable recycling centers such as GreenChip Recycling and Target. As for the functional equipment, we will try to refurbish them so that they are ready to be sent to students around New York City.
