Thanks to your donations, we received all of the power supplies and most of the hard drives this week. 11 laptops have been distributed so far, and 18 await in the wings (we’re waiting on a package of hard drive mounting screws). However, as we’ve been going through and testing them individually, a bunch of the macbooks also have failing batteries or screens… and we’re out of funds to replace them! We need to raise another $2,000 for the remaining hard drives and replacement batteries.
The total average cost of a power supply, 128GB SSD, and battery is $80/laptop. If you can make a donation, you can do so preferably directly in person, or through the Facebook campaign page here, Bitcoin (1HkHr7ht9MbVfA4Bc7kjB45syrutuE7PZv), Stripe or Paypal here: https://omnicommons.org/donate.html – be sure to leave a note that the donation’s intended for the laptop project!
