ERA has added a very interactive way for charities to request computers, and for donors to be matched up with the type of charities and non profit groups they would like to donate to the most. Charities, and non profits can fill out the charity request form, and include all of their information. After it has been approved for addition to the website, the charities will appear on a list from which you can choose and donate to directly. Companies with equipment to donate can fill out the new request for pickup form, and select what additional services they require. Check here for a list of charities and non profits that require computers, monitors, laptops, and other type of equipment.

ERA donates laptops to Calgary's Cradles to Crayons so kids can play and learn about computers on them. These laptops were otherwise destined to a shredder or smelter if it were not for the ERA. We ask for all companies and people of Alberta, British Columbia and Canada to donate their old computers and laptops, as they can help others learn. Just because your old computer or computers are no longer good to you, somebody else can still use them. Click here for pictures.
   
   

 

 

 

 

ERA announces the opening of our Vancouver warehouse. ERA has been looking for the perfect location for our Computer and Electronics Depot for about 1 year now. We have finally found a location that is perfectly suited. Located close to a City of Vancouver dump, large metal recycler and paper recycler, ERA positions itself to deal with the enormous demand for our service in Vancouver.

Grand opening ceremony is scheduled for April 10th, 2007, and invitations will be send in the near future.

ERA looks forward to working with companies and the government in Vancouver and British Columbia, to collect old computer to donate to charities, non profit groups and poor people. The same computers that could otherwise be a hazard for our environment.

   
   

 

 

ERA donates several computers to Calgary's Croatian-Canadian Multicultural Center and 55 Plus Seniors Activity Center. For pictures click here. If you want to contribute to similar donations ERA is planning in the near future, please contact us immediately to donate your old computers, laptops, and servers. ERA is very short on laptops and computer monitors right now, and could use your help. If your company has older computers to donate, or you have an old computer or laptop in your basement please deliver it to one of our donation depots, or to our warehouse directly, and see the difference you can make in your community.
   
   

 

 

 

 

 

ERA adds several new depots for residents in Calgary to be able to donate their old computers, laptops, servers and networking equipment. Please check out our depot locations, Calgary section for new depots in the NW, SW, NE, and SE where you can deliver your laptops and computers for donation.

ERA reminds all Calgary residents that ERA is the only organization that collects old computers, laptops, servers and networking equipment for donation.

Any other "recycling depots" and City of Calgary drop off points, will only collect computers for SMELTING.

If your computers are potentially useful please deliver them to one of the ERA donation locations, as ERA can fix them, and donate them to our community, poor people and other types of charitable organizations.

   
   

 

 

ERA is in need of 500 laptops and 500 computers systems, including monitors and printers for a large project we are working on right now. This project includes providing up to 10,000 residents with access to computers from a library type setting, to connect them with the rest of the world, and increase opportunities for these people. Before disposing of your old computers, please contact us, as your computers and laptops could still be very useful to somebody.
   
   

 

 

 

ERA sends several laptops to help a charitable organization in El Salvador be able to run their program. These laptops were collected from companies in Alberta, that would otherwise been buried in landfills or smelted.

The Habitat for Humanity in El Salvador has informed us that the schools there are still using all paper, and that our donation was seen a huge gift. We hope people in Alberta and Canada will realize how fortunate we all are, and will help us by donating more laptops and computers to us to help more causes like this. Cover poster, thank you letter 1, thank you letter 2.

   
   

 

ERA is looking for donations of old laptops, computers and networking equipment from companies and government departments across Canada to use in our charitable programs. Please contact us if you can help us to install libraries, communities access centers, by providing us your old computers.
   
   

 

Happy holidays and 2007. We wish everyone all the best in this New Year, and hope to provide even more computers to charitable organizations and to communities across Canada in 2007. Any interested charities or community centers can contact us to receive computers for their causes.
