Perhaps your accountants have older computers around the
office. A few years ago we received four >from one of our
supporters whose office upgraded all their laptops. They were
stacked in a cupboard and the accountants were delighted to
see them go to good use!
If you have a personal laptop gathering dust, or your company
is upgrading and is willing to donate to a worthwhile project,
we will arrange to get it to Poland. There are a number of
researchers going to Poland in August and September.
These researchers have often carried laptops for us to
simplify to transport and keep our costs to an absolute minimum.
Don't worry if it needs a little work; JRI-Poland will take care
In accordance with US IRS regulations and JRI-Poland's 501(c)(3)
status, a US tax receipt will be issued for the current market value
of the computer.
If you can help, please contact me privately as soon as possible.
