"It has been our pleasure to meet the computing needs of disadvantaged kids in the Austin Area for 4 years now. From time to time we run low on equipment and I want to appeal to this community to give us a hand restocking our inventory. We've begun to run low. We have enough equipment to meet our next two obligations but after that, we will be needing your help.

"The HeliOS Project maintains our non profit status under Software in the Public Interest and all donations to our effort are tax deductible. We have had some great response in the past by asking corporates to clean out their back rooms of computer equipment. If you know of such a corporation or work for one, please pass this link onto the powers-that-be. We will be able to use that equipment to do the work we do.

"We have some specific parameters as to what we can use and a list of things we need immediately. You can go here to see what we need most to do our job."
