SocialBox.Biz, a London-based technological social impact venture on a mission to collect old disused but still working laptops and hand-held tablet devices to those in need, this week announced they are interested in collecting more Apple products, Apple MacBooks, Apple chargers, iPhones, iPads, iPods, and Applie iBooks ahead of the holiday season.
Determined to provide a channel out of digital exclusion for society’s most marginalised members – homeless, elderly, and disabled – SocialBox.Biz partners with local businesses for laptop donation boxes, and in turn, places the donation in the hands that need them most.
“We want to collect every kind of laptop, whether it’s Acer, Toshiba, Dell, HP, Sony, Apple, and more, to ensure as many people as possible in accommodation services have a chance at digital inclusion,” said blogger Sam of SocialBox.Biz. “In order to do that, we are now accepting any kind of Apple product donation, including iPhones, iPads, iPods, and any other kind of device that can provide worth to someone with nothing.”
SocialBox.Biz’s expansion to include Apple products is designed to spur even more interest in the hearts of Londoners who are looking for a good cause this holiday season.
Once items are donated to the London-based startup, they they arrange for suitable devices to be handed to homeless and elderly in accommodation services. The digital access then gives them a chance to apply to jobs and communicate with family and friends.
SocialBox.Biz is encouraging everyone to share their business mission with friends and family, and consider donating outdated Apple products that are often swept aside when new versions come out every 6 months.
