EAF Launches “100 Computers/100 Days of Summer” Campaign and Announces New Partnership with Keepod

 Electronic Access Foundation (EAF) announced today the launch of “100 Computers/100 Days of Summer” campaign. From today, June 3rd, until Thursday, September 11th, EAF is aiming to acquire 100 computers to donate to charities and people in need. Additional, EAF has announced a new partnership with Keepod, a technology company that has developed software that effectively separates the OS from the hardware, reducing the computer to nothing more than a vehicle.

Companies, schools, and organizations can donate surplus laptop and desktop computers to EAF and receive free removal, data destruction, and tax deductions for the fair market value of their donation. If you would like to participate but do not have any surplus computers, monetary donations can be made to EAF through the 100 Computers/100 Days of Summer fundraising campaign on Crowdwise at http://bit.ly/100computers. All donations are tax deductible. The donations will be distributed to charities in need as well as charities that support at-risk youth and families.

Keepod changes how we look at computers by moving the operating system to a USB device, separating the software from the hardware. By using a Keepod, the need for a hard drive is entirely eliminated, and the impact of each computer can be multiplied by being safely shared to serve dozens of people. EAF’s partnership with Keepod expands its ability to help charities and people in need increasing the number of types of computers able to be donated.  

“Over the past year, we’ve seen a huge increase in demand for our services,” said Ryan McFadden, executive director of EAF. “With our partnership with Keepod and the ‘100 Computers/100 Days of Summer’ campaign, EAF is able to help more people have access to the computers they need,” he added.

To learn how to donate or for additional information, please contact Ryan McFadden, executive director, at rmcfadden@e-access.org or call (908) 872-6922.
