The mandate of the Little Geeks Foundation is: “To enhance the lives of children by providing computers to the underprivileged families within our community”. The Foundation hopes to put computers in 1,000 this year starting this month.
With the help of generous donations from individual and corporate sponsors, Little Geeks Foundation is giving away refurbished computers, complete with Windows XP and Microsoft Office to 100 families of underprivileged kids in the GTA, for free!
When Ben Lucier, Co-chair of Little Geeks’ board of directors asked me to help spread the word, I couldn’t say no.
Thurs., Jun. 12 – 3 p.m.-7 p.m.
St. Andrew’s United Church

How you can get involved...
There or many ways to donate to Little Geeks. Donating a computer you no longer need not only benefits a child, it’s an environmentally-friendly thing to do. If you’re a big geek and want to help refurbish computers or mentor the kids, you can do that too.
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 Little Geeks staff member to attend the event and pickup their free computer.
NOTE: You must register to be qualified to receive a computer.
