NYC Mayoral 2020 Youth Impact Award: Daisy Hampton
"Congrats to 12-year-old Youth Impact Awardee, Daisy Hampton for creating a tangible impact on her community through service in 2020!
When remote learning began in 2020, Daisy first thought of her classmates' mental well-being and access to technology. Daisy quickly jumped into action engaging volunteers and donors to bridge the digital divide that NYC youth faced. Thank you for your service, Daisy! New York City is stronger because of you."
Including You is so excited to have recently partnered with Tom's Hardware to spread awareness on the digital divide. From the article: "Tom's Hardware is partnering with Including You to help source gently used PCs (desktops or laptops). We've reached out to our industry contacts seeking devices, we're scrounging around our closets and we're asking you, our readers, to do the same."
Daisy Hampton has given away 25 computers to help needy students — but her 26th was destined for someone closer to home. When she read a Daily News story about a Bronx student struggling to attend remote classes on a faulty iPad, she knew she had to help.
Daily News - OPED
Daily News NY - The Daily News published an OP-ED piece written by Including You's founder, Daisy. The piece covered the struggle students are facing in their new academic environment, and offered advice on how to make the classroom more inclusive.
