Frequently Asked Questions
Who do the computers go to?
Each computer goes directly to a family who needs it in LA! We are partnered with El Nido in Los Angeles and hand-deliver or ship each electronic.
Does it matter how old my computer is?
Nope! Not at all! As long as the computer is in working/suitable condition we'll take it!
Can I donate other electronics too?
Yes! We'll take laptops, desktops, tablets, and even phones if you have them! If you have additional or specific questions about donations you can email us at !
Do you accept computer monitors alone?
Currently, we do not accept monitors without computers. Each electronic goes directly to a child who needs it so in order for that to happen it can't be an attachment.
How will you get my computer?
It's up to you! When you register to donate you get the option of dropping it off, having us pick it up, or shipping it to us.
How do you find recipients?
We find families specifically through El Nido Family Centers in Los Angeles and hand-deliver or ship each electronic.
Does it cost anything?
Nope! The entire process is free all around! All we need is your electronics and your support!
How old are the recipients?
The kids are anywhere from K-12!
Can I get a write off from this?
Unfortunately, no. At the moment, since time is of the essence, we are a grassroots movement desperately trying to get these electronics to kids who need them as soon as possible so they can continue their education at home.
Do I have to clear my own computer or will you do it for me?
It's up to you! When you register to donate, we give you the option of clearing it yourself or having us do it for you.
How is Laptops With Love different than other charities?
For one, Laptops With Love is strictly LA-based. In addition, Laptops With Love was created solely with the intention of helping families during the current pandemic. This means there are no applications for recipients and each computer goes directly to an individual family.
How can I help spread the word? (shameless plug)
You can help spread the word by following and reposting us on Instagram and Facebook, both @laptopswithlove! You can also ask friends and family to get involved as well!
