While most of us view our tech devices as everyday essentials, roughly 17.9 million Americans over the age of 18 don't use the internet. * Access to an up-to-date computer or laptop can be difficult particularly as the rising costs of rent, utilities, and food place them out of reach. We've received quite a few requests here on ThatHelps for assistance finding a laptop or computer. We hope that this information can help.

If you are in need of a (free) laptop or computer, there's an option for you. Computers With Causes operates in all states across the U.S. They rely on people and organizations donating equipment to them, which they refurbish and make available to those who are in need.

So, if you're in the market for a (free) laptop or computer, check out this organization and their process for obtaining one 👉

PS - Consider sharing this information out to those who can use it. Tap "Share" below.

(AND, if you have a laptop or computer you're no longer using, this same organization accepts donations from all 50 states to help those in need.)
