Newstead Technologies, a major consumer electronics retailer in Singapore, announced that they have raised $10,000 from the Gift Your Tech campaign for TOUCH Community Services. Sky Chen, Head of Operations, Newstead Technologies presented the donation to Lawrence Tan, Manager, TOUCH Young Arrows at the Gift Your Tech event at Marina Square Shopping Mall yesterday.
Many stepped forward to contribute their unwanted devices for the trade-in, in support of the campaign’s aim to e-recycle and donate to charity. “I like that the campaign is for a good cause. Instead of letting the old gadgets sit at home, they can now be used to make a difference in someone’s life,” said Shirley Mok, Marketing Manager who was at the event to trade-in her old laptop.
During the campaign which runs till January 27, 2017, consumers can trade-in PCs, laptops, tablets and smartphones for cash vouchers at 12 participating Newstead Technologies stores. Newstead Technologies will donate 20% of the trade-in value and aim to raise a total of $20,000 for TOUCH Young Arrows to help disadvantaged children.
“We would like to thank our partners for their contributions in making this campaign a success so far. We are heartened that the campaign has received such positive support from the public and hope that they will continue to bring in their e-waste for recycling,” said Mindy Tan, Chief Executive Officer, Newstead Technologies.
