We've had some great success in getting computers donated for our HeliOS Project. Problem is, because we cannot get our kids the internet connections they need, we are now almost 100 percent dependent upon wireless connections.
We cannot get wireless devices donated.
Everything else is coming in well and people have been generous to a fault...they just don't have or won't part with wirless devices. We're kind of in a jam and we will come here to see if we can't get this at least temporarily fixed.
Pasted directly from the Current Needs page of our website:
Here are three kinds we can use. The PCMCIA Adapters, the USB Wireless adapters and the PCI wireless adapters. We need all of them in equal measure so any one of them would be greatly appreciated. You can order from the corresponding links and have them shipped to us, you can donate to our fund on the blog of helios website as we can buy them in bulk (on the left side of the page) If you work at a company or firm that has some not being used, we can use those as well. We have a drop point in North Austin if that is more convenient for you. You can also drop them off at our facility on Giblin Bend Road or we will pick them up as our resources allow.
If we were not so behind in getting these machines out, we wouldn't come here for this...we like to keep the HeliOS Project business on that side of the page, but in this circumstance, we hope that folks can give us a hand getting these devices here and into machines. If you care to purchase them and send them to us as an option, email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get you our shipping address. That may be a bit more time than some people have so in that event, you can add to our bulk order fund at the top left of this page.
Thank you for being part of what we do.
