Manchester Center, VT, April 22, 2010- Just in time for the 40th Anniversary of Earth Day, Digital Wish and Cartridges for Kids have teamed up to launch Recycle Forward, a national green initiative that raises money for schools by recycling small electronics, cell phones, and ink cartridges.

This Earth Day, we invite businesses, community members, and schools nationwide to sign up at www.recycleforwardnow.org and start recycling electronics to reduce hazardous waste and raise money for our schools’ technology funds to help our children succeed in a global community. Digital Wish also donates an additional 2-10% back to a school after each purchase, making fundraised dollars stretch even further.

How does the program work?  Anyone can register for free at recycleforwardnow.org to start a campaign for local schools.  Step-by-step instructions and print-ready marketing materials are available online for an easy-to-implement campaign.  If you are a business, simply place a drop box in your lobby and encourage employee participation.  Individuals can ask local businesses to do the same and collect items for the campaign.  Free shipping labels can be printed online, making it simple to send in your collected items. Fundraised money will build in an online account to distribute to classrooms of your choice.  Your favorite schools will be able to use the funding on Digital Wish to purchase brand new classroom technology.

Recycle Forward is a unique opportunity for businesses and individuals to contribute to their favorite schools’ technology funds while reducing electronic waste and spreading eco-awareness. Anyone can register for free and run a Recycle Forward campaign.  Sign up today at www.recycleforwardnow.org.

Grant Your Local School’s Wish List This Holiday Season  
Posted by Jon Ketchum at 06:41:14 PM Mon 12/07/2009
MANCHESTER CENTER, Vt., Dec. 7 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- This holiday season give the gift of technology to teachers in your local school and Digital Wish will match your gift with additional funding.

Here's how it works! Teachers register for free at www.digitalwish.org and create a personalized classroom profile.  They then go shopping and create wish lists of technology items they need for the classroom such as SMART Boards, Dell Netbooks and Flip Video Camcorders and describe how each item will benefit the students and improve the learning experience. 

Individual donors, corporations or fundraising groups can go to Digital Wish and search for classrooms based upon location, interests or by browsing the feature teacher section.  Here you can read about the classroom and its needs and purchase an item for the class or donate a dollar amount to help fundraise for the item.  Once a technology item is purchased, Digital Wish will match additional funding to go back into the classroom's account to purchase other items on their wish list.

Digital Wish also works with national technology partners to grant technology to schools or to offer other matching programs. John Lintner recently took advantage of a matching program and donated 24 Flip Video Camcorders to his children's elementary school for the price of 12. "Through the site I was able to contribute more than double the amount of cameras than my budget would have previously allowed," Lintner said. "I would recommend Digital Wish to other donors for the same reasons why I used the site: it's convenient, easy and you know how your money is going to be spent."

To learn more about Digital Wish and how you can donate to your school visit www.digitalwish.org.  If your school isn't registered or a teacher does not have a wish list, Digital Wish can help you create a personalized donation to the school of your choice.

Digital Wish, a national non-profit working to bring technology into the classroom, is giving the power of the donor to choose exactly which classroom will benefit from their generosity this season.  If you are looking for a creative way to give to your children's classroom or local community Digital Wish never takes any fees off of your donations and will match any technology purchase with an additional 2-10% in funding, making your holiday gift feel larger.

Purchases and monetary contributions are also tax deductible, making Digital Wish a great resource for potential donors."


How it works:
Donors and teachers can register for free on digitalwish.org. Teachers set up "wish lists" for the Microsoft or Adobe products and other classroom technology they need, and donors can give cash donations or purchase items directly from a teacher's wish list. Using Digital Wish's Class Locator, donors can find teachers or schools anywhere in the United States. After receiving a cash donation, teachers "go shopping" for the technology they need, and Digital Wish donates 2% - 10% of every order back into their shopping cart.
