Revel Consulting's Laptops Find Valuable Second Home With InterConnection.org PartnershipNew Partnership Reduces eWaste and Boosts Technology Access for Education Around the World (May 17, 2012)
KIRKLAND, WA -- (Marketwire) -- 05/17/12 -- Today, Revel Consulting (www.revelconsulting.com), a Kirkland, Washington-based business management consulting firm, announces a newly formed partnership with InterConnection.org, a nonprofit organization that helps charitable organizations worldwide achieve their missions by providing them refurbished computers. Through the partnership, Revel will donate retired laptops used by their associates for charitable reuse, and Revel employees will provide volunteer support at InterConnection.org technology donation drives in the Seattle area.
"InterConnection.org's dedication to driving computer reuse, not just recycling, through a self-sustaining, social enterprise model attracted me to join their board, support them through volunteering my time, and advocate donating Revel's retired hardware," said Michael Aldridge, Senior Associate at Revel Consulting and member of InterConnection.org's Board of Directors. "Collaborating in this way is a win for both Revel and InterConnection.org, but most importantly for the children who will have access to technology perhaps for the first time in their lives."
"We are very grateful for Revel Consulting's generous donation and offer of partnership," said Charles Brennick, Founder and Director of InterConnection.org. "Companies like Revel that choose to reuse their old laptops through InterConnection give new life to their assets in underserved communities in Seattle and around the world, while protecting the environment from eWaste"
Since 2009, InterConnection.org has grown quickly and now provides reuse, recycling and data destruction services across the United States, shipping refurbished computers and laptops worldwide to countries such as Chile, Belize, El Salvador, Tonga, New Guinea, Uganda, Romania, Pakistan, Peru and Cambodia. In their Seattle headquarters, InterConnection.org also provides computer training and education to low-income volunteers to gain valuable hands-on computer hardware training.
"We strive to keep our associates armed with the newest technology available, which until now meant our quality used laptops didn't have a home after we were done with them," said Brett Alston, Managing Director and Co-Founder of Revel Consulting. "Now we have a skilled partner in InterConnection.org who can ensure these computers are responsibly reused to bridge the digital divide and bring educational opportunities for children everywhere. On many levels this partnership aligns with our own Sustainable Giving program and we are proud to support them."
In its over 10 year history, InterConnection.org has shipped more than 30,000 computers to NGOs, schools, libraries, and community centers in 40 different countries, reaching more than 250,000 people. In the United States, InterConnection.org works with TechSoup to distribute refurbished computers to nonprofits across the country, having helped over 800 non-profits gain access to technology in all 50 states.
