Informative Message to Your Regional Hubs

Statusmeldung

If you have any questions about this page or if you find any errors, please write a message to the support wall and a Labdoo volunteer will help resolve it. Thank you for helping to improve our wiki pages.

From time to time, it is a good habit to send out an email to hubs in your area reminding them about the Labdoo tools that are available to help organize their laptop campaigns and sanitation events. For instance, for school hubs this message can be send out around early September as their yearly coursework starts. For other hubs (company, NGO, or home hubs) this message can be sent out anytime.

In this page you will find templates for such type of message in various languages that you can re-use for your convenience.

The world buys every year more than 400 million laptops and electronic tablets, yet 5000 million people still don't have access to powerful online and free sources of education. Whether we have 5 minutes, one hour, or a day of our time, here are a few things we can all do together or on our own to help spread education around the world:

  • Tag a laptop. Do you have a laptop or a tablet that you no longer use? Then consider donating it to a Labdoo school to help bring education to a child. All you need to do is 'tag it' by going to the this link and filling in the form. This will only take you 5 minutes.
  • Sanitize a laptop. Do you have one hour of your time? then help sanitize a laptop by cleaning an unused laptop or tablet, installing the education software, and making it ready so that the laptop can travel to a needy school. Follow the step by step instructions in the Labdoo wiki to sanitize your unused laptop from this link: sanitation steps.
  • Help carry a laptop in your next trip. Are you traveling? then consider bringing one or two sanitized laptops/tablets in your luggage to your destination. By re-purposing your trip to help move laptops around the globe, at Labdoo we accomplish our mission of spreading education to schools without adding any new CO2 emissions to the Planet and without any economic cost. We call this collaborative way of transporting objects around the world 'dootrips'. Here is a list of Labdoo hubs from where you can pick up sanitized laptops, and here is a list of target school destinations where they can be delivered. You can register your dootrip by going to this link.
  • Rescue and recycle a broken laptop. It is as important to spread education using laptops as making sure we keep our planet clean from electronic waste. Do you know of a laptop that is broken and that it can no longer be fixed nor used for education purposes? then it is time to recycle it! Find the closest recycling facility to your place and bring the laptop so its components can be properly disposed, starting a new cycle of life.
  • Don't forget to register your dootrips. This is very important because: (1) it allows volunteers and helpers to know when the laptops need to be ready to be transported as well as to know how many laptops can be carried; (2) it allows schools to know when the laptops are scheduled for their arrival, and (3) it allows Labdoo to compute the amount of CO2 savings derived from re-purposing a trip and to keep a historical record. The rule of thumb is simple: every time a laptop travels to a destination school, you should register a dootrip. Find all you need to know about dootrips (including how to register them) from this page.
  • Create your own hub. If you have not done so already and if you have more time and determination to help children reach education, you can also create your own Labdoo hub. Labdoo hubs can be created at home, at work, at high schools, at universities, at your NGO, you name it. The idea is simple: with your own hub, you will be able to create your own local campaigns to collect unused laptops and to host your own laptop sanitation events. If you are interested in creating a hub, email Labdoo at contact@labdoo.org.
  • Keep your hub semaphore up to date The hub semaphore allows hub managers to announce whether their hub is currently active (accepting laptops and/or performing sanitation tasks), temporarily inactive (e.g. for vacation reasons) or closed. Don't forget to keep your semaphore up to date. You can find more information about hub semaphores from this page.
  • Communicate with other Labdooers using Team Walls. Using email is good, but we encourage all of you to use the Labdoo Team Walls to communicate as much as possible. Walls are a great way to share information and communicate because they allow all of us to openly see the conversations that are going on, and they also provide a historical record of all the conversations which is very useful to help build the knowledge base. Using the Team Walls is very simple, read these wiki pages to learn how.
  • Do you own or work for a company? check out Labdoo's CSR package. Companies can play a key role when it comes to helping those that are most in need. If you own or work for a corporation, consider helping the cause of spreading education around the globe by implementing one of the modules described in the Labdoo Corporate Social Responsibility Package.
  • Help to translate the Labdoo.org social network to other languages. The goal of Labdoo is to break barriers so that education can reach out to all the regions of the world. A key to overcoming these barriers is the capability to write documents and tools in as many languages as possible. Whether you have just 5 minutes, 1 hour, or more time, you can help the platform by contributing a translation. Even if you only have a little bit of time, you can still help with the translation of a small portion, as the sum of many little efforts can make a big difference. Everything counts when it comes to spreading education. If you are interested, contact the Labdoo Team at contact@labdoo.org. See also the Translations Brochure.
  • Help spread the word. Even if you can't do any of the above, there is still a lot of people in the world who can. So a great way to help spread education is by explaining the Labdoo story to your friends, family, class mates, or co-workers. You can read the About Labdoo page and you can watch this video to learn how the Labdoo Aid Social Network works and to get an idea of how together we can help make Education a universal right. You can also create your own local campaigns to spread awareness and mobilize your local community by using the material (logos, flyers, posters, etc.) that you will find in the Labdoo Toolkit.
