What is The HeliOS Project?

Many people are already aware of what we do and how we do it, but there are many more that are not.  Our friends at reddit may want to learn more about what we do, so we post here to greet them and welcome them to our effort.

The HeliOS Project accepts broken or decommissioned computers, refurbishes them, then gives them to Central Texas kids that cannot afford them.  Since 2005, The HeliOS Project has distributed 1329 computers to local area children.

HeliOS is a non profit organization with three directors and a volunteer pool that well exceeds 100 folks.  We have built learning labs and community computer centers in several locations around Austin and have done the same for some of the smaller towns in our area.  We have three directors that lead our project.

The HeliOS Project depends on the generosity of the Linux and tech community to help us do what we do.  All donations of equipment and money are tax deductable and 100 percent of donations recieve go straight into the project.  Directors are not compensated in any manner...well except for the satisfaction of doing the right thing.
