Our Very First Donation:
I wanted to say how much I appreciate what The Missing Pieces Foundation has done for my daughter. The opportunity to have a laptop has enabled her to be able to do school work without having to stress either of us about trying to go to the library all the time so that she could get her homework and projects done. I am not able to financially give her one, and the Missing Pieces foundation and its founder Davis has opened door with their donation of the laptop to her, [allowing] able to do her school work. It is an incredible gift that will not only further her education but enable her to reach personal educational goals as well.I can never thank them enough for this incredible gift and think what they are doing to help kids is amazing. -- Michelle M.

Hello Mr. Xu, I'd like to thank you for the computer you gave me. Without your foundation, having to buy a computer and downloading different applications for it would have been costly and difficult. Your foundation has made high education easier to reach for me and all the other students you have helped. Thank you! -- Jorge B.

Hi Davis, I really appreciate having the opportunity to have a laptop be given to me for free. Coming from a family who is lower middle class, laptops like these are a luxury and are far from our reach. Thanks to this foundation, I now have my own laptop which is such a reliever, instead of having a shared one. Thanks to this, I will now be able to use it to take notes in class, do presentations and it's less of a hassle now. I think that it is awesome for a foundation to do this for lower income students, because not all of us have the money to buy laptops, even though we need one for academic use. Thanks so much! -- Ramona M.

Thank you so much for the very generous donation of the two Macbook Pros! My chess students have really enjoyed the ability to use them to play fun and instructive chess games. The combination of learning while having fun helps to create an environment where the children want to continue learning even more about chess and these computers are perfect for that!
