Dell gives $15,000 to CyberKids

The Dell Foundation donates $15,000 to CyberKids, which provide young cancer patients in Ottawa with notebook computers and age-appropriate software so they can continue their studies while undergoing treatment. CyberKids is an initiative of the Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Support Programs Inc., a local not-for-profit organization that loans the computers with Internet access and learning software at no cost to families for the duration of their child’s treatment. “The grant to CyberKids is consistent with the Dell Foundation’s commitment to support innovative and effective programs that help young people learn and excel in a world driven by a digital economy,” says Dell Ottawa senior manager Michelle Raso. “It’s Dell practice to contribute to the quality of life in the communities where Dell employees live and work.” Over the last year, the foundation has provided $167,000 to such programs in Edmonton, Toronto and Ottawa.
