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.
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.

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.
