Wil Morin Memorial Computer Giveaway for Kids
Wil Morin The world lost a very special person on August 28, 2011. William Francis Morin (or as everyone knew him, "Wil") was tragically killed in a car accident. It was his 32nd birthday. Wil was a very talented I.T. (Information Technology) professional who was, at the time of his death, working for Sun Media. He worked with a number of daily and weekly newspapers (including the Brantford Expositor) in Brant, Norfolk and Oxford counties.

Anyone that worked with Wil would tell you that he was a kind, sincere, and extremely patient person.

He left behind his soul mate, Stefani Darrow and his beloved parents Brenda and Bud Thomas and cherished sister, Jennifer Morin and her fiance Wayne Zybala, beloved step-sisters and their husbands Wendy and Greg McColl and Winnifred and Pete Brennan, and loved step-brothers Terry Thomas, and Tim and Debbie Thomas.

To honour and celebrate Wil's life, The Personal Computer Museum has started a special spin-off program from our regular computer giveaway program that will focus on children 12 and under. The program will use funds donated by corporations and individuals in Wil's memory to supply laptops (where possible) to children in need.

In the meantime, if you wish to donate to the fund you may do so online or in person at the museum (cash and cheques accepted at the museum itself).

If you have any questions, please e-mail us.

Donating equipment

If you donate a working laptop to the museum, we will use it for this program and find children in need to give a refurbished laptop to.

Many people have laptops that still work but may suffer from malware or viruses. Our volunteers completely refurbish old computers and laptops back to working condition, just like they are new from the factory.

Did you know that children are required in most schools to submit their homework and assignments done on the computer. Many children live in families that cannot afford to provide proper nutrition, let alone supply a good working computer.
