Help local schools out at this week’s LinuxWorld

Our friends at Untangle and ACCRC are at it again — taking old computers, refurbishing them and donating them to local schools!  They’re hosting a huge Installfest at this week’s LinuxWorld.

Here’s how you can help out:

  • Help install GNU/Linux
  • Help breakdown old computers to identify reusable parts
  • Donate your old computer (ACCRC will have a collection booth and can provide tax deductible receipts)
  • Nominate a school that needs computers and is willing to try GNU/Linux desktops

Here’s a recap on why we think the Installfest is cool:

  • Helps get computers to children/schools in need
  • Helps expose new users to Free & Open Source Software
  • Helps divert thousands of pounds of toxic electronic waste from landfills
  • And, it’s a great cause to bring the community together and a chance to meet some cool people!

Did I mention that they are giving out some cool Firefox swag to volunteers?!
