Free Pickup of Unwanted Laptops, Laptop Chargers, and Gadgets - Usable, Old or Broken.

Jed from Mount Roskill

Help us help the indigent students in the Philippines -🇵🇭  - Like and Share our Facebook Page as Well.







Copied from Ron's Original Post



I am from the Philippines and based in Hamilton.



We are sending laptops and gadgets back home as there are a lot of students there who would like to go to school but they cannot because of Covid.



Their only chance now to study is via online learning. if you have any laptops or gadgets that could enable them to go online...everything will be very much appreciated.



If you know anyone who is just disposing their old techs... please do let them now as I have seen people just dumping their techs where in those could have been usable in the hands of a student wanting to learn.



You won't have to worry about pickups. All you have to do is put it in a box , will send you a tracking number and courier will pickup from your place.



Most of the laptops and gadgets collected will go to the Philippines and the others will be sold here to help fund the operating cost of pickups (mainly for courier, shipping and pickups).



If you also have other things that are of value that you would want to donate... we can accept them also. We will sell them and the proceeds will help us to keep operations going.



Kindly message me here or text/call Ron at 02108512849.



Maraming Salamat po! (Thank You!)

Were you there? 1960s photo of Auckland Star employees restored

Ripu Bhatia Reporter from Auckland Stuff

A photograph capturing the staff at the Auckland Star in the 1960s has been discovered and restored.

Tony Lawson, 85, received the photograph from his friend Don Armitage, whose father Jack is pictured in the photograph.

“The photo came to me in a very poor condition,” he said.

“However, my youngest daughter's close friend who is a graphic artist has done a few hours work on this and has come up with an amazing improvement.”

Lawson started working for the Auckland Star in 1964.

“In those days it was hot metal, as they called it, a line of type writers going like the clappers,” he said.

“The noise was something, it’s a wonder we’re all not stone bloody deaf. It was 1976 they were all gearing up to go into the computers.”

He estimates the photograph was taken in the 1960s.

Do you recognise anyone from this historic image?
