World Computer Exchange at http://www.worldcomputerexchange.org/
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Expand minds, not landfills. Millions of “outdated” working computers
end up in US and Canadian landfills. It's a disturbing trend. On
average, discarded computers are only three or four years old and many
years of useful life are unnecessarily squandered.

That's where WCE comes in. Your donated computers and funds connect
youth in schools, libraries, refugee camps and community centers in
over 65 developing countries throughout the developing world.

We have 30 approved plans that will connect over 350,000 new youth to
the Internet. They just need a Sponsor for the last 1/3 of our
sourcing and shipping costs.

Since 2000, we've helped establish 2,550 computer labs in 40
countries, connecting over 1 million youth to the Internet each year.
With your support the next 1 million youth won't have to wait too
long.

There are lots of ways you can help.
