Wow, so it seems like days since I last posted, but from all accounts, it has been mere hours..... Ok, so in other news, we had the boys doing some community service today. They went through the stacks of computers in the garage and we sorted out 20 computer systems that will boot up and are candidates for our students needs. This was no easy task as we had to unstack many computers to get 20 good ones that will serve our purposes. (on a side note, if you have any old computers you would like to donate, or even older ones that need to get to the recycling center, we will be taking a trip there soon, so get those old computers to us as soon as you can. You can click here and fill out the contact us form, get directions to come and drop stuff off, or just get our number to text or call us.) All computers we take in will be used to teach an at risk individual an employable skill of pc repair tech. Each graduate gets a complete computer system to continue their studies and keep their troubleshooting skill sharp, as well as an opportunity to apprentice or intern at a local business in some related technical field. As I sit here and type this I realize how excited I am to see this happening, and how much I look forward to meeting you and answering any questions you may have about our program. Thanks for riding along...
So this is where we give the good stuff and you get to tell us how you feel. If ever you desire to reach out to us, feel free to respond to this blog or click here and let us know what is up!
Ok, I am Robin and I am the madman who is trying to make this whole thing work. I really want to keep everyone up to date with where we are in this process, so this is going to be the location of that information, at least until I get the video blogging perfected and start just speaking this stuff straight to ya! For now, I just wanted to get this first blog posted to show we are here and we are working it more then ever.
Yesterday we met with one of our corporate partners, TBF Computing. We are finalizing their commitment to provide us with the hardware (computers, monitors, keyboards and mice) needed to make this thing work. We are very grateful to Theo Furber and Greg Apa for their time and efforts to assist us in meeting this need and providing this amazing donation.
Ok, so I have to get some dinner in me, (I wasn't kidding about being a madman, non stop in this world) I'll post some more real soon!!
