Update: I have received so many inquiries about the computers from some really top notch orgs that I now have to put a deadline on submissions or I won’t be able to push any of the applications through due to sheer overload! Deadline for inquiries will be 5pm central time on Thursday, December 11th. Unfortunately, this is a hard deadline for the aforementioned reason. Thanks for all of your inquiries thus far!
I (Eric Olson) agreed a while back to manage day to day activities for TECH cocktail’s preferred non-profit, Teaming for Technology, for November, December and January while founder, Randal Dill, was at bootcamp (National Guard). Not only was this a great chance to do a little giving back but it was also great to help a friend who is serving our country.
Anyhow, as part of keeping Teaming for Technology moving forward I am in the position of having to give away a number brand new IBM laptops and desktops to some deserving non-profits here in Chicago.
If you think you may be one of these non-profits please email me (eric [at] techcocktail [dot] com) and let me know what your needs are and how the laptops would be used. I will do my best to accommodate and please keep in mind I need to work through the United Way for these machines so the process may take a while.
Happy Holidays everyone!
Teaming for Technology exists to place technology focused individuals in volunteer roles with local non-profits. If you are a non-profit that needs tech help or a techie who wants to give back please email me.
