    Send them to me.

    I've mentioned before that I run a youth center for disadvantaged teens and teens from low income families. Most of them don't have the means for a new mobile phone.

    I currently have three PlayBooks, and they go positively gaga over them. Besides playing games, surfing the net and Facebooking, we run programs with them for photography, filming, and digital music creation. This summer we're heading out in our community, PlayBooks in hand, to showcase the youth, our local businesses, and to spread a little BlackBerry cheer, through photo and video montages!

    I'm in Quebec, Canada. Poverty is a reality here, and I work with an average of 30 teens who would gladly put your PlayBooks to better use than as dust collectors or gripe inspirers.

    You could also bundle in your Legacy devices and BB10 devices. Contact me privately, as a non-profit organization I also provide tax receipts!

    I'll send everyone interested in donating all the relevant information and credentials so you can feel as confident as possible that your PlayBooks are going exactly where they're supposed to be going! Thanks for the support everyone!

    Also, as the youth finish their community focus montages, we'll be posting them to YouTube, and I'll post the links so everyone can see how the newly loved PlayBooks are being put to use! These montages will also spotlight the PlayBooks themselves, so you may see your device in action!

    For something a little more tangible, this is where you're sending them:


    Do you hate your PlayBook?-img_00001655.jpg

    Do you hate your PlayBook?-img_00001657.jpg

    Do you hate your PlayBook?-img_00001658.jpg

    Do you hate your PlayBook?-img_00001660.jpg

    Do you hate your PlayBook?-img_00001661.jpg

    Do you hate your PlayBook?-img_00001662.jpg

    Do you hate your PlayBook?-img_00001664.jpg

    If you want a tax receipt, it'll be sent upon reception of your donation and dependent on the kind of PlayBook it is. 16GB - 200$. 32GB - 225$. 64GB - 250$. LTE - 275$

    These values are based on the upper end prices we're currently seeing on Amazon.com

    Our charity number is:134194893 RR0001. This can be matched to our listing on Canada Revenue's website, using that number or our organisation name: http://www.cra-arc.gc.ca/ebci/haip/s...rch-eng.action

    You just don't claim on your income tax. It's just prove the donee is a legitimate organization.

    It's just an income tax receipt, to show the government you made a donation. The values I listed will be what the receipts are made out for depending on the model of PlayBook donated.

    Sorry mate, already utilising mine for elderly people with dementia. I could do with a few more, but I'm sure you'll be needing them more than I. I'll be praying for people's generosity towards you.

    Glad to hear it! That's great work! I know the best Sudoku apps available if you think they can help. I'll keep you posted on how many are donated!

    I have a deep attachment to my BlackBerry PlayBooks, all three of them plus the two unopened spares. I wish Thorsten would burn in Hades.

    5 PlayBooks? I'm jealous. I gotta get myself 3 more . Now if I buy now should I take into consideration of Thor being actively discuss and considering compensation for PlayBook owners? I got one iou promise on OS update, one on BB10 update, if I get 3 now it will be a promise of
    compensation for no update. What about if they renege on bug fixes? That means all 5 will be eligible for broken promise for bug fixes? I need to hire a CPA to keep this straight.

    No not at all its not the devices fault it was released the way it was. Neither the lack of bb10 or updates is its fault the fault lies with BlackBerry.
