I have 2 kindle DX's Graphite color, not new but very like new and one original Kindle Paperwhite that I no longer need. Any ideas on what to do with them? I would like to donate but not sure where and was looking for some helpful ideas. This forum can be very helpful and I would appreciate input. Thank you

Oh, how kind of you to think of donating! I'd ask your local public library if they can use them. If not, maybe an elementary school? Or a senior center? Because you can increase the font size so much, maybe they'd be useful.

Of course, they also have significant resale value.

Like the senior center idea as I have elderly friends who can only read large print books or those on screen that fonts can be sure and reset to factory settings!

I work with special needs children and adults and would be willing to purchase them from you at a reasonable cost. I was hoping to pick a few kindles up for Christmas to give as gifts this year. Not pressuring you here - just offering.

I work with a church that could give you tax deductible donation receipt.

Hi Cindy,

I would be happy to donate to you! Not sure how to contact without posting email address any suggestion? I have a special needs nephew and think that would be a great place for them to be used. I have access to UPS shipping and could easily get to you. Let me know.
