The Electronic Recycling Associations (ERA) was happy to provide Project Humanity (PH) with 2 laptops to support their PH 1:1 program which provides one-to-one online mentorships to youth on the margins in an art form of their choice. One of the laptops will be used for video editing by a young person for her filmmaking mentorship. This young person is living in a shelter and has limited access to technology, and the laptop will help her pursue her professional and artistic goals in the film industry.
Project Humanity (PH) is a socially-engaged theatre company founded in 2008. Based in Toronto, but active nationally, PH believes the performing arts can bring disparate groups together and help them listen more compassionately. PH has become one of the country’s leading developers of Verbatim Theatre, a journalistic form of theatre that involves transforming original interview transcripts into ‘live documentaries’ for the stage. The PH: YOUTH arm of the company, operating in both high schools and the youth shelter system, has impacted the lives of over 19,000 students since we incorporated eleven years ago.

ERA works with charities across the country to provide refurbished electronics for their programs. This gives them access to reliable technology while allowing them to apply their resources to what they’re good at: developing programs to help Canadians struggling with poverty, health concerns or are otherwise experiencing misfortune. Because the Electronic Recycling Association is an advocate of equality, we are not specifically affiliated with a given charity. The ERA helps hundreds of charitable organizations each year through the donation of necessary computer equipment. Organizations qualified for donations through ERA’s donation program include: registered charities, non-profit organizations, care facilities (seniors’ homes, hospitals, daycares, etc.) and educational institutions.
We strive to meet reasonable requests for IT and related equipment, such as computers, laptops, projection equipment, printers, phones and related peripherals. Our goal is to fulfill every single reasonable request for a computer donation that we receive, and we are thrilled to announce that we are getting close to achieving this goal. Since 2004, we have donated thousands of computers to Canadians in need and this number grows daily.
Donating your used electronics is as simple as giving us a call or contacting us online. Schedule a pick up date with our team or visit one of our donation depots Canada-wide. We accept used desktops, notebooks, computer peripherals, software, and more.
