If you don’t need to sell your iPad V1 in order to help finance your iPad 2, or just find yourself with extra iPads laying about your house, here’s a great way to re-home them.
Apple now has a program that can match your obsolete iPad with someone who really needs it — an educator in a low-income school district. Through alink on the Apple Retail web page, Apple is directing those who want to share the magic of the iPad with an appreciative audience to the Teach For Americawebsite.
Teach for America is an organization that aims to end ‘educational inequity’ and help ensure that even children in low income communities receive an excellent education. I think that’s a great objective and a very worthy cause – especially now with all the looming cuts to schools and teachers here in the US.
To donate your iPad to Teach for America you just need to take it into an Apple retail store. They’ll do the rest and get it prepped and delivered to a school district that can put it to good use.
For those of you who have recently got an iPad 2, what did you do with your first-gen iPad, or what do you plan to do with it?
