Rather than voicing dissent by using the technology that you have, why not further social change by giving it away? Environmentalists were shocked by a United Nations research group report in March that revealed heavier-than-expected environmental impact caused by personal computers. Giving away computers to worthy causes is an act of high-tech activism that carries an environmental and social benefit. Nate DeVault, the CEO of US-based charity Computer Planet, explains that PCs donated to his organization go to schools local residents, or non-governmental organizations. "We're supplying computers into the meteorological office in Kenya, so that, at the district level, farmers can come in and analyze information for forecasting and planning their crops," he says.
Every now and again we get a chance to help raise awareness about our programs at computer planet with videos from the people we support. Check out some of our computer-giveaways on our YouTube Channel at http://www.youtube.com/ComPlanOrg
