It’s the year 2020 and yet 82 million Americans lack access to a home computer with internet. With many schools closed because of the pandemic, access to devices and connectivity is more critical than ever. This BoxWorks, we’re partnering with human-I-T, a nonprofit organization providing low-income individuals and nonprofits with technology, internet, and digital training.
With over 150,000 computers disposed of in the United States daily, human-I-T partners with corporations, government entities, nonprofits and the general public to turn e-waste into an opportunity. In hopes shining a light on the incredible work of human-I-T, we’re excited to launch a Tweet for Good at BoxWorks.
This Thursday, for every tweet using the hashtag #BoxWorks, we’re pledging to contribute $5 per tweet to human-I-T, with a donation totaling up to $15,000. For every $100 raised, we can provide a hotspot for a student and their family, and for every $140 we can provide a refurbished laptop.
Join us at #BoxWorks on September 17th, and don’t forget to tweet your heart out for a great cause! If you'd like to join us in supporting human-I-T beyond the Tweet for Good through a monetary or technology donation, you can learn more and contribute here. Together, we can do our part to help shrink the digital divide and provide students the resources they need for school this fall.
