Donate working computers to a project that will give them new life

I hope that many of you will be receiving some a new laptop or PC this Holiday.  I hope that because maybe I'll get lucky and someone will send me one, too. (Note to Asus, I'd really like to check out a netbook.)  Once the new computer is in place, you will have a new problem to deal with.  What do you do with the old one?

Learn more about the types of equipment they are looking for on their website.
