Our Shopify store proceeds will assist The On It Foundation's Mission of providing free computers, 21st Century Skill Sets, and STEM education to under-served K-12 students and their families in the United States.
"With over 30% our current workforce remote, and many educational institutions also offering remote learning; our organization have seen a tremendous reduction in donated computers we provide to our K-12 recipients", states Ms. Phair. "Being agile to pivot and find creative strategies to obtain donated computers systems, is our organization's strength", Ms. Phair noted.
To address this need, Ms. Phair is pleased to announce the organizations new Shopify store selling high-quality, low-cost refurbished laptops; as part of the organization's sustainability initiative – The Jump On It Program.

The pace of technological change in today's economy has never been greater, according to The On It Foundation. "The marketplace in the 21st century will add over 20 million jobs to the American economy. Our mission is to help educate our young people to fill them," Ms. Phair said. "Students without computers and STEM education will not be able to compete academically with other students who have access to technology in the home. The On It Foundation is working to bridge this technology gap through its mission to provide free computers and 21st Century skill sets to under-served households with children in grades K-12 that meet the required income guidelines."
