Fundraising for Kidspire Vietnam to enable chromebook refreshes for orphanages in Vietnam
Boost support with coworkers,
friends, and family
$6,172.03 raised of $6,000.00 goal
The goal has been reached! You can still donate to show your support.
On the first of July, I reached my 12-year milestone with VMware. Looking back I think one of my most memorable experiences was my trip to Vietnam to help setup computer classrooms for various orphanages. (More of the backstory to be found here: http://www.yellow-bricks.com/?s=vietnam)
When reaching the 12-year milestone each VMware employee gets an amount to donate to a charity of choice. I decided to donate to Kidspire Vietnam as I know there are various classrooms that are up for a hardware refresh. With my milestone donation and a personal donation, I have been able to provide sufficient funds to enable Kidspire Vietnam to refresh a single full classroom (15 Chromebooks).
** UPDATE: we have collected sufficient funds to allow Kidspire to refresh 2 classrooms, when combined with my grant and personal donation that means 3 full classrooms can be refreshed, a total of 45 new Chromebooks!! **
With this fundraiser, I am hoping to enable Kidspire Vietnam to refresh at least one more additional classroom. The cost of a refresh is between 3500 USD and 4000 USD. Hopefully, we will be able to reach this goal.
Believe me when I say that nothing beats seeing how much these kids enjoy learning about new technology and being able to interact with people over the internet.
I would like to thank everyone upfront for donating, or considering to donate.
