Giving the joy of tech

Who we're trying to help



About Nitrozac and Snaggy


We are so lucky to be able to do all that we do with technology. So, inspired by people like Steve Wozniak, we want to give something to those who aren't so lucky, and who are just starting out.

We've discovered that some schools don't even have their basic computer needs met. This results in the students becoming second-class tech citizens when they move on to college or high school. So, we're hoping to inspire people like you to help, by donating working equipment and software you no longer use to these technology-challenged schools.

How does it work?
We're trying to make this as simple as we can. If you have a computer you'd like to donate, see if there is a local organization that will accept it. In the US, organizations like Environment, Health and Safety Online, can help you find a suitable place. In Canada, there's the Computers for Schools Program, which is the organization we are donating used computers to. In the UK, there's this great list of charities.

We also provide a forum where tech-donors and tech-needers can post up their information, and hopefully some matches can be made.There's more information in the FAQ.

What do you get?
Most of all, you'll get the glory and good feelings from helping out kids who really need some technology. If you'd like, we can also help you get some great-feel good press... promo on our popular websites and in our newsletter. We can also offer some fun stuff, ...again, for more info, check out the FAQ.

What are schools looking for?

  • Computers, new or used, in working condition. Macintosh or Intel is great. Ideally, we are hoping to inspire a good-hearted computer manufacturer to donate some new or almost new equipment in return for some great publicity and some very grateful kids.
  • Monitors, keyboards, printers, modems, hubs, cables, and accessories in working condition.
  • Software programs you are no longer using. Graphics and multimedia programs, word processing, ...anything that you think a student might be able to learn on or create with.

So, if you are able to help us, or have any advice, ideas, or suggestions, or have any questions at all, please email us.
