#GivingTuesday

This year, on Tuesday, December 1, 2015, the Ed Tech of WNY is participating in #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving.

Last year, more than 30,000 organizations in 68 countries came together to celebrate #GivingTuesday. Since its founding in 2012, #GivingTuesday has inspired giving around the world, resulting in greater donations, volunteer hours, and activities that bring about real change in communities.

We invite you to join the movement and to help get out and give this December 1st.

Ed Tech of WNY helped over 20 sites in 2015. Check out a list of the sites we worked at - http://www.edtechwny.org/PreviousSites . We enrich the lives of children by improving access to modern computer technology. Without our services and support many of these sites would go without. We directly impact WNY children’s education. We are bridging the divide in the underserved areas. We have provided the following services to these sites:

·         Wiring the complete building

·         Setting up computer labs

·         Replacing all PCs in schools – This year 2 sites each received over 40 PCs.

·         Providing content filtering to protect kids from visiting inappropriate web sites

·         Installing or upgrading servers

·         Installing Wifi throughout buildings



Visit www.edtechwny.org/donate today to help our organization to be able to support even more sites in 2016!  The smallest to largest contributions, are all appreciated and have a huge impact on our WNY children.  

Donate. Volunteer. Become Involved.
