Apple is promoting a new donation program that gives you the opportunity to donate an old iPad to an educator. If you have an original iPad and are updating to an iPad 2, consider donating your old iPad to the Teach for America Program.
What is Teach for America? The program takes well-trained teachers or “corp members” and places then in one of 39 urban and rural regions that are low-income. The volunteers then teach in those areas for two years with the goal of implementing high-quality education to low-income students. Corp members in Teach for American are flames of optimism in an otherwise dark situation.
With Apple’s efforts, iPad owners can give their unwanted devices to an Apple Store for donation. Retail stores will give the iPads to the teachers and you get a deduction because Teach for America is a 501(c)(3) corporation.
Please consider this opportunity!
