Humanity for Children is an organization who devotes their energies to help children in East Africa with extremely limited resources. Their mission statement reads, “Humanity for Children is committed to improving the quality of life for children in remote areas of East Africa through community-based, sustainable initiatives that empower individuals and positively affect health, education, safety, and economic conditions.“
Red Leaf IT is committed to help this initiative. “We are a rapidly growing outfit, located in Chesterfield Valley, thanks to the support of all the regional businesses that provide us with hardware. We are able to pass tablets and other electronics along to children who have very little in the way of technology.” said Jim Gardner, managing partner of Red Leaf IT Asset. “When Red Leaf’s customers send us their decommissioned equipment, not only can they receive payment from us, but their equipment gets a second life, and suitable items are then donated to Humanity for Children”. Red Leaf Asset has already contributed several Apple iPads, to the organization, with faith this re-purposed technology is going to a child that can benefit greatly from it.
Companies are able to either schedule a professional on-site pick-up, or simply drop off their excess electronics, network or IT equipment to be recycled by the truckloads. In many cases, Red Leaf will pay for this equipment, then refurbish it on-site to be sold back into the local economy. It’s one way to keep the landfills free of hazardous materials, as well as offering affordable computers and IT equipment to businesses and individuals in the region. “It’s a win-win for everyone. Once our clients see the benefits of working with us, they don’t go anywhere else“, says Danny Schnarre, Red Leaf’s website and marketing manager. “Our process makes it easy, and convenient, and knowing this stuff is being reused responsibly only adds value to our service.”
Hot off the heels of celebration, this week also marked the grand opening of Red Leaf’s new retail storefront that is located in Chesterfield Valley near the new outlet mall. If you are looking for various IT and networking items at an affordable price, plan a trip to come down and take a look at their store for yourself, and see firsthand what can only be described as a technological wonderland. Or stayed tuned for the launching of their new website, complete with online ordering and free shipping on most items.
