A Message From Matthew Sinclair

Pre internet the idea of no computer for a day was everyday living. Now from watching Netflix, to getting caught up on sports highlights to checking my email, using my computer is as much a part of my daily routine as ensuring I eat 3 meals. Even with smart phones , my computer is crucial to my way of life (which speaks to just how privileged I am). *I decided I would write this message from my phone rather than a computer and it has taken soooo much longer with so many hiccups including changing several wrong auto corrects and changing my language to French multiple times!

In thinking of this campaign I realize that at this point so much of the learning and new skills that I pick up are through my computer.

As a teacher, I'm privileged to have my digital projector and laptop setup permanently in my classroom and the students in my class are educated ( and at times educate me and each other) through this digital access. On top of that, my school has several mobile laptop carts that are so embedded in our day that even if 1 stops working, routines are slightly interrupted.

On December 4th, my day will be more than interrupted. It will be, for just one day, changed. Please help close the digital divide by donating what you can and helping one more young person receive a computer of their very own! Together if we reach my goal of $250, we will have covered more than the cost of one computer! Thanks in advance!

About This Campaign

Could you survive a day without your laptop? We challenge you to try it on December 4th! Imagine a day with limited access to technology. Imagine using your mobile phone to create reports or finding a local library to check your email. This is the reality for thousands of Canadian youth and we challenge you to try it for a day! All you have to do is ask your friends and family to sponsor you to go a day without your computer. It only costs $222 to provide a laptop for a youth in need - that is just 4 friends donating approximately $55! So click on the orange "Participate" button, make a profile, and you're ready to go! To date, Sky’s The Limit has provided laptops to almost 4000 youth across Canada. With your help, we can reach so many more. The [#NoComputerForADay] challenge is on!
