Datapoint: Ricoh, nice but...consider the opportunity for the Printernet in Education

It's good to do good. But it's better by doing well by doing good. Fixing bottom of the pyramid high school education would be very, very good. If you happen to be a Print OEM or an OPM/PSP or an MPS it also can mean doing well.

"Oakbrook Terrace, Ill. — May 5
Due to high demand and great results, Ricoh Americas Corp. doubled its previous donation of 100 revolving IT skills e-learning seats to the CompTIA Educational Foundation’s Creating Futures program. The donation allows Creating Futures to provide additional employment-focused computer training free to transitioning U.S. veterans, individuals with disabilities, at-risk youth, minorities and displaced workers with the opportunity to gain employable skills and achieve rewarding careers in the IT industry.

“Since launching our new promotions campaign this year, our requests for training have increased by more than 1,000 percent. The need is out there, and it’s big. Generous donations like Ricoh’s help us meet that need, and we challenge even more companies to step up to the plate,” said John Venator, president and CEO, CompTIA Educational Foundation."
