Microsoft Grants $7.5 Million in Software and Technology to Youth Villages; Grant Boosts Technology for At-Risk Children

Microsoft Grants $ 7.5 Million in Software and Technology to Youth Villages; Grant Boosts Technology for At-Risk Children

Memphis, Tenn. (PRWEB) April 24, 2013

Microsoft has awarded a grant of $ 7.5 million in software and technology to Youth Villages, one of the nation’s largest providers of help to children with emotional and behavioral problems and their families.

The grant is part of Microsoft’s YouthSpark initiative, which is designed to create opportunities for 300 million youth around the world. It will provide software and support on Youth Villages’ residential campuses, supply technology for young adults being helped through its transitional living program and improve the organization’s internal and external communications systems.

“Microsoft is one of our most important partners,” said Patrick Lawler, Youth Villages CEO. “Since 1997, their generosity has allowed us to provide the best computer technology to our kids. This grant means Microsoft’s total support of Youth Villages’ children comes to nearly $ 13 million, which has helped our youth learn computer skills and allowed us to support our staff with modern clinical records and office technology.”

Microsoft YouthSpark is a global initiative committed to create opportunities for 300 million youth in more than 100 countries over the next three years. This companywide initiative includes company programs that empower youth to imagine and realize their full potential by connecting them with greater opportunities for education, employment and entrepreneurship.

The grant allows children receiving help at schools on Youth Villages’ residential campuses to use the latest Microsoft software and curriculum to improve their computer literacy and learn the fundamentals of word processing, spreadsheets, the Internet and presentations. Youth Villages’ residential campuses are located in Memphis and Linden, Tenn., Atlanta, Boston and Portland, Ore.

Young adults in the Youth Villages transitional living program in Alabama, Georgia, Florida, Massachusetts, Mississippi and North Carolina use computers powered by Microsoft to study for their GED certificates, apply for colleges, prepare resumes and search for and apply for their first jobs.

“Microsoft’s continued support allows us to do our best work for children and families,” said Anne Coggin, director of education at Youth Villages. “For our kids, the computer lab is a wonder, offering diverse learning opportunities and a ticket to becoming technologically literate, something that will be crucial for their success as adults.”

The grant also provides the technology to enhance internal and external communications systems for more than 2,700 Youth Villages staff members who perform critical functions each day, such as accessing medical records, documenting treatment plans and reporting to parents and referral partners. Youth Villages’ counselors, teachers and staff will help more than 20,000 children and families this year from 67 offices throughout the country.

“Through YouthSpark, we’ve made a commitment to provide opportunities for youth to succeed in today’s competitive marketplace,” said Marietta Davis, general manager of Microsoft’s Greater Southeast District. “The Youth Villages grant will give at-risk youth the technology and training critical to success in the technology economy. I’ve been so impressed with the organization that I joined its national board of directors last year.”

Project Wild Thing attempts to convert one million children to the benefits of outdoor play

Project Wild Thing attempts to convert one million children to the benefits of outdoor play

Ivy Bond gets close to nature in a still from the Project Wild Thing documentary

(PRWEB UK) 21 September 2012

A nationwide nature marketing campaign has been launched by film producers Green Lions, aiming to persuade one million children to play outdoors and enjoy the benefits of nature.

The UK-wide nature campaign is big, bold and innovative – to be seen on billboards, in maternity units and on screen. Running the campaign is filmmaker David Bond, who has appointed himself Marketing Director for Nature, in an attempt to advertise the benefits of nature to the nation. In the film David Bond takes advice from nature, psychology and marketing specialists, including Simon Middleton, author of Build A Brand In 30 Days and CEO of brand consultancy firm Brand Strategy Guru.

The campaign backed by the National Trust, NHS Sustainable Development Unit, Play England, Play Wales, Playboard NI, Arla, Good For Nothing and Britdoc.

David Bond said: “According to UNICEF we are raising the unhappiest kids in the developed world. Fewer than 10% of children play in wild places, compared with 50% a generation ago, kids roam far less and half of kids have been stopped from climbing trees, and 20% from playing conkers or tag.

“The lure of the indoors – with TV, the internet and computer games – is creating a generation that has no connection with the natural world. My kids are 3 and 5 and they scream if I switch off the TV. I’m now fighting to get my kids back before it’s too late. I’ve spoken to teenagers across the UK many of whom say, ‘Why would I want to go outside – staying indoors is much more fun’. I don’t want to hear that from my children.”

As well as a traditional advertising campaign, PROJECT WILD THING will deliver:

OUT AND ABOUT baby packs for new parents (example attached). After giving birth and alongside the ubiquitous Bounty Pack, mothers will receive a pack to help them think about how they can spend time outside with their baby. Run as a trial study across three major hospitals, this pack will aim to tackle the problem at the source by encouraging parents to help their kids be outdoors right from the start.

The WILDTIME app, available from, is a technological toy that delivers information about where the best fun is really to be found. WILDTIME is designed to help parents and kids who are looking for fun in the outdoors, but are not sure where to find it.

A WILD PLEDGE for people to sign that affirms commitment to the natural world by pledging to match screen time with outdoor time. By gathering signatures, Bond is attempting to lobby government for more natural learning and playtime in schools.

According to David Bond, “I’m blown away by the number of people wanting to join the campaign. Big brands like Apple, Shell and BP all use symbols of nature to advertise their products for a profit. I am advertising nature because it’s good for you and it’s free. My crusade is one small step towards encouraging people to spend less time watching screens, and more time outside.”

The Project Wild Thing campaign challenges parents and children in towns, cities and the countryside across the UK to leave behind the cosy indoors and get outside into the wild. With the help of advertising and marketing experts, Bond’s goal is to persuade one million children of the benefits of Nature – an amazing, free, wonder-product – in just two weeks.

“Spending time outdoors is fun, it’s good for you and it’s free. Given the opportunity, kids love being outdoors. They just need to be given the opportunity. If we don’t act now, a generation of children will miss out on developing a fundamental connection with nature. Without future custodians of the natural world, who will look after our planet 50 years from now?”

Bond’s marketing campaign is being filmed for a documentary. The British feature-length documentary PROJECT WILD THING, is being produced by film producers Green Lions, in conjunction with the BRITDOC Foundation ( It is due to be released nationwide in cinemas in Summer 2013. A major campaign to encourage children to spend more time in nature will accompany the film’s release.

Company Information:

David Bond is available for interview. Stills and video footage from the campaign are also available.

Redemtech Helps KINfolk Connect Seriously Ill Children with Outside World

Redemtech Helps KINfolk Connect Seriously Ill Children with Outside World

Columbus, Ohio (PRWEB) September 9, 2008 -–

Redemtech, (, a world leader in IT asset disposition and Technology Change Management (TCM) services, is helping KINfolk and a top five pharmaceutical corporation expand the drug company’s laptop computer donations program to benefit seriously ill children. KINfolk is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization.

Based on the success of similar contributions in the past, the pharmaceutical company will donate 100 additional IBM T41 computers to KINfolk, with most of the units provided to young patients at Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children. KINfolk, based in Wilmington, Del., uses technology such as laptop computers and Internet access to help connect seriously ill children to their families, friends and other online opportunities.

Redemtech, which is the first commercial Community Microsoft Authorized Refurbisher (CMAR) in North America, will install Windows XP Professional operating systems (OS) and the Microsoft Office Suite on all of the donated laptops for a $ 5 administration fee per software application.

“This latest donation will allow more than 5,000 ill and injured children annually—who otherwise may not have had the opportunity—to communicate with the outside world,” said Robert Houghton, president and CEO of Redemtech. “Providing laptops for these young patients truly reinforces the value that a donation program can have for others.”

Because Redemtech has been able to minimize OS and imaging costs, KINfolk is able to use grants and funding to expand their valuable service to additional homes and facilities throughout the country.

“Everyone from young children to parents can use the computers to stay in touch with the outside world—whether they are communicating with friends, providing updates on the child’s condition, paying bills or keeping pace with school work,” said Melinda McGuigan, KINfolk’s executive director.

Redemtech worked with KINfolk to provide the specifications for the PCs received and the OS installed to complete the paperwork required to ensure eligibility in the Community Microsoft Authorized Refurbisher program.

KINfolk participates in Redemtech’s TakeBack program, which provides free asset recovery and recycling services at the donated systems’ end of life. The program not only saves recycling fees, but it ensures the electronic waste is disposed of in a safe manner.

“We believe that all IT equipment should be recycled, and this type of contribution enables companies of all sizes to put outdated equipment to use to meet others’ needs,” McGuigan said.

About KINfolk

Since 1999, KINfolk has been lending laptop computers and Internet access to children whose lives have been disrupted by disease and injury. Working with corporate donors, the non-profit organization provides laptop computers, operating systems, Internet access and filters and tracking software to children and families nationwide to keep them in touch with their support network at a time when they need it most.

Keeping an Eye on Your Children with Simple Computer & Internet Monitoring Software

Article by Jay Thurston

Let’s face it. We all know that the net is filled with inappropriate topic matter, and of course, we worry about what our kids are undertaking on the property computer when we’re not about. Whether or not it is pornography, drugs or alcohol you’re probably worried about your kid(ren) “researching” it on the web.

You’ve most likely regarded as some type of pc monitoring software package to “maintain an eye” on them. Net blockers that come with our computers and browsers can only go so far. So, now that we know we need some type of monitoring computer software, where do we go from here?

There are tons of possibilities out there when it comes to computer and net monitoring software package, and it does get overwhelming. My wife and I did some research and soon discovered that there are lots of choices that didn’t genuinely satisfy us. Most of the computer software was too confusing, too expensive and not basic adequate to do just what we required. I’m sure that most parents are seeking for the identical items we want:

1. Easy-to-use monitoring software program.2. Software program that runs continuously and discreetly.three. The ability to know about inappropriate pc use Right away.4. Only know the poor things that the youngsters do on the computer, but leave the rest alone. We do not want to know every single detail. (Our kids DO deserve some privacy!)five. Affordability.

We soon discovered that we couldn’t locate this and we decided that, “sometimes too considerably is not sufficient.”

I stated to my wife, “An individual must design a system that only picks up key phrases that could relate to inappropriate topic matter, and that details should be automatically emailed to the user(parent).”

And this is how was born.

We speedily brought the thought to a programmer, who happens to be related, and the rest is history.

We produced affordable, effective, secure and Valuable computer and world wide web monitoring computer software that is designed for the user.

We also donate ten% of our proceeds to the Children’s Miracle Network. Please visit to see why.

Dating with children

Write-up by PeeterSan

There’s no doubt about it, on-line dating has been 1 of the fantastic achievement stories of the computer age – a logical extension of the old ad in the individual column of a weekly community paper.

But be ever conscious: the woman you meet could come as a package, albeit an attractive 1. If she’s divorced with children, main school or teenage, realise that they’re a major factor in the future good results of your relationship. Show some interest in her children’s welfare, health and education, and you’ll establish some of the most crucial credentials you’ll need.

A mate between marriages numerous years ago lived in Mt Isa, a flat, hot, dusty outback Australian mining town where 5000 guys from some 60 nationalities function the copper, lead, gold and zinc deposits deep underground. The Isa’s a hard location. Drinking is the significant recreation, and the Aussie drinking culture is not a pretty 1.

As the breakfast announcer at the neighborhood radio station he was hosting an outside broadcast when he got chatting to an appealing divorcee with three kids to cut a extended story short, they moved in together and it was bliss for the next 5 years till he contracted bowel cancer and died the cause for the pleased union was merely that Stewie was constantly on hand for the kids – a teenage son and daughter, and their 11 year old younger sister. He willingly helped them with their homework and sports coaching trips, as nicely as which he coached them in little issues such as table manners and social etiquette.

She eventually remarried, and the children have all benefitted in a variety of methods from Stew’s gentle influence. Women you meet on dating web sites can be beautiful, but vulnerable, and the kiddies should be portion of the deal.
