Free Computers


Hawaiian Hope is a nonprofit organization that takes in used computer equipment (and other useful office furnishings), rebuilds them and then provides them to other nonprofits for free.

Unfortunately, Hawaiian Hope is about to lose their storage facility and must distribute hundreds of computers and associated equipment in the next 10 days.

If you need additional computer equipment or want to upgrade your current system, please contact Hawaiian Hope or visit their offices (see map above).

Following is a description of the computers and other equipment that are available. If you are interested, please act quickly.

Norm Baker
Vice President Community Building
Aloha United Way
200 N. Vineyard Blvd., Suite 700
Honolulu HI, 96817
Direct phone: 543-2202
Main phone: 536-1951
Fax: 543-2222

Hawaiian Hope needs to empty our temporary storage area by the end of the month, 10 Days. As we typically give computer systems and other hardware / furniture to nonprofit organizations, I would like to tell all, if they need computer equipment to please contact us immediately and arrange to come visit and pick up what they need, and as much as they need.

Here are SOME of the items available :
We have 600 computer monitors. CRT type. Adding a 2nd computer monitor to a computer is easy and gives you more room to work on the screen.

We have 400 keyboards, 400 power cords, 400 computers, hundreds of miscellaneous cords (printer cords, USB cables, network cables, etc) we have networking hardware. Switches, routers, punch down blocks. Printers, Scanners… headphones…. you name it we likely have it.

In addition to the computer hardware, we have the following furniture available :
40 identical – Single person work center desks (3 foot wide, 3 foot deep). 11 identical – Two (or 3) person work center desks (5 feet wide by 30 inches deep). Printer Stands, Folding Tables, Small Children wooden desk/table and other tables and desks.

Regarding the computers. Most computers are Pentium 4 style. 1GHz or faster. We take all computers donated, wipe them clean and then rebuild everything in them. This ensures that there are no viruses or spyware on them. We also install a list of industry standard software on them. Word processing, spreadsheets, presentation software, typing tutor, anti virus, anti spyware, photo editing, etc.

We can also lock the computers down where if they are planned to be used for public access, that no matter what is done to them, they will automatically reset and wipe out changes made to them. This prevents spyware and viruses from infecting the computer, and prevents the need for daily maintenance and baby-sitting them.

Computers are only handed out in working order, so anyone that is interested in them, they can pick up all of the other hardware immediately (monitors, keyboards, etc) and we will put them on a list and get the computers to them as soon as they are rebuilt.

Our office / warehouse is located at 611 N. King street, see attached map. We will be offering pickup 7 days a week starting tomorrow, Saturday, the 19th. Pick up time is from 11 Am till 7 PM. It is best to call before you come down just in case – 352-8800

If the orgs would like us to build computer classrooms, training centers, or install everything for them, we can take care of that as well… although we will need to schedule it.

RECALL – Infants’/Children’s Liquid Tylenol


J&J recalls infants’, children’s liquid Tylenol
Fri Sep 25, 11:48 am ET

NEW YORK – Johnson & Johnson’s McNeil unit is voluntarily recalling 57 lots of infants’ and children’s liquid Tylenol products because of possible bacterial contamination.

The products being recalled were made between April and June and include nearly two dozen varieties, including Children’s Tylenol Suspension 4 oz. Grape, Infants’ Tylenol Grape Suspension Drops 1/4 oz. and Children’s Tylenol Plus Cold/Allergy 4 oz. Bubble Gum.

Johnson & Johnson said late Thursday it has contacted wholesalers and retailers about the recall. An inactive ingredient didn’t meet internal testing requirements, the company said, and B. cepacia bacteria were detected in a portion of raw material that went unused in the finished product.

The company said in a letter that no bacteria were found in the finished product, and that the likelihood of a serious medical event is remote. But it said it decided after consulting with the Food and Drug Administration that it would recall the products.

“It was decided, as a precaution, to recall all product that utilized any of the raw material manufactured at the same time as the raw material that tested positive for the bacteria,” the company said.

Consumers with questions should call McNeil’s consumer call center at 1-800-962-5357.

Lot numbers can be found on the bottom of the product’s box and on the sticker that surrounds the product’s bottle.

A full list of the recalled products and lot numbers is available to Tylenol’s web site:

Wai`anae’s Crystal Robles Becomes a Realtor; Stands Up Against Cancer

Wai`anae’s own Crystal Robles has reached her goal of becoming a realtor associate. She works for the Hawaii Realty Group, and may be reached at:

Hawaii Realty Group
James Campbell Building
1001 Kamokila Blvd. Suite 106
Kapolei Hawaii 96707
Direct: 808-489-6833
Office: 808-548-SOLD

Crystal also recently decided to take a stand against cancer, and sent this message:

I just joined my Mom’s cousin Derek Lewis Sr.’s dedication page at LIVESTRONG action.

Derek Lewis Sr. inspired someone close to me to commit to end cancer, and now I’ve joined with them.

This page is a part of the world’s largest dedication book that LIVESTRONG Action will use to pressure world leaders to do more to fight cancer. If we can collect enough names in the book, it will have a real impact when Lance Armstrong delivers it – but we need more signatures.

Can you take a moment to add your name to the dedication page?

Lance Armstrong recently dedicated his ride in the Tour de France to the fight against cancer. Now that the race is over, he’ll send this dedication book – with your signature – to world leaders and pressure them to make cancer a priority in their own countries. It’s our best chance to push for better treatment, more funding for cancer research and access to care for everyone around the world.

But if people like us don’t stand up, these leaders won’t pay attention. Will you check out the dedication page? Derek Lewis Sr. inspired me
to take action – hopefully they’ll inspire you to do the same.

Congratulations & Mahalo to realtor associate Crystal Robles!
