AdamMaikkula in the US! Congrats AdamMaikkula!!
The card that inspired Howard was: Network literacy by getting all communities online w/ use of donated/trade-in cellphones & computers on social sites. Use Kiva $
According to Howard, “This idea has the potential to provoke action by more people, with broad impact. I would donate old phones, computers, if I knew how (and if it was made easy for me). Using Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and other social sites also seems to me to have a lot of potential for kickstarting a robust movement.”
