Socialbox.biz, London, The UK – The holiday season is in full swing, which means families, individuals, and co-workers are looking for a worthy cause to donate their time, money, and resources for the betterment of United Kingdom communities.
SocialBox.Biz, a social business venture based out of London, wants everyone to know the best thing they can donate this season is an outdated laptop.
Dedicated to partnering with local organisations and corporations that host laptop donation bins, SocialBox.Biz is providing a laptop donation guide for anyone interested in preparing and sending off their outdated but still useful and working laptops properly.
“We’re grateful for any proceeds that we can place in the hands of those in need,” said Samuel Sonu, spokesperson for SocialBox.Biz. “It’s as easy as identifying a device that can be donated and including as many accessories and documentation as possible that came with the original purchase.”
To donate laptops, individuals need to first isolate the items they wish to donate, and once the items is isolated, they are to include any keyboards, mouses, software, etc. that came with the original purchase if they are still available.
Next, clearing the computer of any passwords, personal information, and documents is important for security down the line. After all that is completed, the laptop is ready for donation.
“We are just asking people to put in a few extra minutes of their time to make sure the devices are wiped of any information that is confidential,” said Samuel. “Donating these laptops is going to give disenfranchised, homeless, and elderly individuals living below poverty line and in isolation a chance at participating in society. It’s the embodiment of the holiday spirit. We hope to grow our donation numbers this season!
