With all the recent talk about problems with the American schools and our future leaders, I felt inclined to make a statement about this nonprofit. What impressed me enough to donate was their insight. That’s not to say they totally saw this coming but they’ve done their research and understand the problems many low-income Americans face. By removing the problems or making a “work around,” they are enabling people to succeed. They realize that technology must be included in any successful education solution and they are one of the very few to offer such a program.

Needy Americans will now be able to concentrate on education without the worries of day care, class and work schedules, and transportation. In the past, I would have had to donate to several organizations to make this happen. Now, I give to one.
