Great news - Two major sponsors on board
We've just had some brilliant news. We've secured a major sponsor for our Computer Aid International fundraising appeal. Ricoh have signed up after some excellent discussions during which we realised the commitment they feel for issues such as sustainability and bridging the digital divide are very much in line with our own.
They have agreed to sponsor us to the tune of £4,000 - which is enough to kit out two complete computer suites in African schools. It's a wonderful gesture and we really can't thank them enough.
It's brilliant to have them on board and their generosity and belief in this project sets us ever closer to reaching - and hopefully smashing - our grand total.
And in another development CNET Networks UK - publisher of silicon.com and ZDNet - has agreed to meet all the costs of the trip to Africa where we will see our hard work, and the generosity of sponsors such as Ricoh, deliver real results.
This means all of the funds raised will be going directly to Computer Aid International. This is a wonderful way for CNET to get involved in this excellent cause.
Our company is at the very heart of the technology industry in all that we do and we're fortunate enough to work in very exciting and successful times. However, we are also perfectly positioned to show how technology can make the most incredible difference to parts of the world it has barely touched to date.
By making it possible for us to raise the money for Computer Aid International CNET is making a huge difference to future generations.
