Fat Ed & his buddy Tina Flores are working towards sending a container of medical supplies and computers to the UNIFA Medical School in Haiti in April or May. Ed has already got about 70 or so computers ready, and would like to send another 30 or so, but can use donated tech-crap (working monitors, hard drives, keyboards, rodents, memory, computers, he’ll format them and put Linux on them so you don’t have to worry about your data). To raise money for the container Tina is opening a thrift store in the Fruitvale for a couple of months, and the Grand Opening is today. I’m not sure what hours she plans to staff it, but she can probably use contributions of household items. You can contact Ed to pick stuff up (“biow @t riseup D-O-T net”), but he is fleeing the country for a few weeks next week, so maybe try Tina at “tina9941 @t yahoo D-O-T com” (sorry for obfuscating the eddresses to discourage spam).
