Daisy has received over 200 requests in one day for laptop requests from public school teachers on behalf of their students. Now, she meets with NYC educators or families several times a week to deliver laptops or hotspots. If you want to help, you can make a cash donation to Including You or donate a computer to help Daisy help students. Including You has a waiting list of volunteers at top high schools in NYC looking to serve as mentors or tutors. Parents of kids who would like to be matched with mentors are encouraged to email firstname.lastname@example.org.
