SocialBox.Biz launched their “Laptops For Homeless Support Initiative” in 2016 seeking to re-home all excess laptops, electronic devices, and IT components in London and UK. Already well on their way, it still takes a number of firms participating to to deliver old but still working corporate laptops, and IT hardware to the marginalized members of society.
Significant partners with thousands of redundant technology pieces are needed for this initiative. Going forward companies looking for practical positive CSR should seriously consider partnering with SocialBox.Biz. By providing the initiative with old business computers and laptops that they no longer need, knowing their efforts are improving lives of disadvantaged people.
Computers and Internet access are vital to being relevant today. SocialBox.Biz is doing something different here. Their business model focuses on social impact. SocialBox.Biz is determined to transform no longer needed, yet still usable items into resource by partnering with larger businesses and organisations.
And, economically speaking, by engaging unemployed and socially and digitally excluded members of society, laptops will enable them to join the workforce, learn marketable skills, and contribute their efforts towards growing the economy. In return, the economic expansion will help all businesses, no matter the size.
Spread the word to your friends and co-workers. Bringing old laptops, computers, servers, and routers in London to the attention of SocialBox.Biz will help the people, the communities, and the economy of the UK.
