The Africa Zebras (young girls) Laptop Fund – Please Help!

Category: Dad's Giving Back

You all know my story about meeting toys, and more.  The 3rd box just arrived and they were overjoyed.  In the photos they just sent me, they included one of the Internet Cafe they go to when they want to communicate with the outside world.  While I doubt they can get broadband in their small town, there’s NO doubt they could use a laptop or two!

So, I’m launching a fund-raiser, today on my radio show, to raise money for this cause.  Details about who to make out the checks to and the charity will be forthcoming as I need to set this up “officially.” If, in the meantime, you’d like to send them some books, toys, games, and more, please do so to:

Frank Bennin
P.O. Box 719
Agona, Swedru

I’m also starting a laptop fund – I am hoping we can raise enough for at least one, maybe two laptops to send them.  Any leftover money will be used to send them more books.

Here’s is the new column I’ve written about them with their address, should you care to send them your own box of computers.  If someone has a connection with a computer manufacturer, PLEASE forward this blog to them.
