About This Activity

ABOUT OUR CAUSE:

Over 2000 families in Forsyth County do not have Internet in their homes.  With so much of the schoolwork requiring online access, we want to make a difference in the lives of those who do not have the same priviledges as others.

In 2015, students are expected to study and complete assignments online whenever there is an inclement weather day.  Can you imagine what it would  be like to have no Internet access - even for one day?

In it's first two years, the Forsyth BYOT Benefit has donated over $80,000 to the Forsyth County Schools, placing Internet in over a hundred homes, providing devices to deserving students who were without, and improved the Media Centers in 23 schools.

Please help us do more for those who need us.
