London UK Social Enterprise SocialBox.biz Appeals To #UK #CEOs, #CIOs, #Corpgov Boards and IT Managers Regarding Old Tech For Homeless Initiative

SOCIALBOX.BIZ is a hub of technology Social Enterprises providing business services to support social causes.

Please RE-TWEET from their twitter to help: twitter.com/SocialBoxBiz

The appeal is being made by The Laptops for Homeless Support Initiative run by SocialBox.biz, a London based technology social enterprise that donates IT equipment to benefit people’s lives.

The initiative has already donated 150 refurbished laptops to Thames Reach homelessness charity.

They are appealing to businesses to donate their old laptop computers so that they can be refurbished and given to people who have experienced homelessness.

The goal is to collect 1,000 laptops by 2020, which will be distributed by homelessness charity Thames Reach to the people using its services. In order to apply for jobs, reconnect with family and friends, and have an online presence today they people need access to laptops.

SocialBox.Biz’s Peter Paduh said: “It’s about bettering our communities and societies by taking the laptops some view as no longer needed and giving them to the people who need them the most. We are leveraging Twitter as a tool to make this possible for us. Please consider re-tweeting our updates to your business community.”

Jeremy Swain, Chief Executive of Thames Reach, said: “These laptops will give the homeless and marginalised people who receive them the opportunity to communicate with friends and relatives, develop new interests, and access advice to improve their skills and employment prospects.”

Yussuf Omar, who experienced homelessness, but is now housed and learning about computers at IT sessions run at Thames Reach’s Employment Academy in the London Borough of Southwark, is one of the laptop recipients. He said: “I’ve never had a computer before, so getting a laptop has been great for me, helping me with my personal development.”

The initiative  has had quite a few prominent business leaders tweet out about their project already. They are looking to kick-start a social media campaign to help them reach more businesses.
