"Africa is, indeed, coming into fashion." - Horace Walpole (1774)


recycle for a cause

Austinites, if you've got old electronics sitting around that you need to get rid of, there's a great opportunity this Saturday from 9am to 2pm. Students at McCallum High School are collecting your old computers, televisions, CD players, cell phones, and anything else electronic to try to refurbish. What the experts can't refurbish, they'll recycle for you.

The best part of this is that the refurbished computers will go to students whose families can't afford their own. The students have a deal with Grande Communications to provide free internet access to those students as well.

What a great cause, and a great solution for several problems at once. We can get excess stuff out of our homes, we don't contribute to pollution by recycling, and teenagers who need a computer will get them!
