If you’ve been yearning for the new iPad 2 but feeling guilty about your gluttony since your original iPad is still working just fine, then here’s a solution. Apple Stores are now accepting donations of old iPads to be given away to the Teach for America program. Now you can get the new iPad 2 and still feel good about yourself.
The Teach for America program places well-trained teachers into 39 urban and rural regions across the country to work with low-income and disadvantaged students. Volunteers in the program agree to a two-year placement aiming to bring higher-quality education to low-income areas.
Teach for America is a 501(c)(3) corporation meaning that your donation may be tax deductible. Simply drop off your old iPad at an Apple Store when you head over to pick up your new iPad 2. The device will then be sent to the Teach for America program, where it will be redistributed to the volunteer teachers for use in their classrooms.
