ANOTHER DONATION: THANK YOU Bel&Bo!

Close the Gap wouldn't be anywhere without its donors. That's why we want to take the time to shine a light on some of our beautiful partners once in a while.
Our whole organisation revolves around bridging the digital divide. We aim to close the digital gap by delivering refurbished IT devices to valuable projects all around the world, but we would not have refurbished IT devices if it weren't for our donors. So today, it's time for us to thank yet another donor, thank you Bel&Bo!
Bel&Bo, a Belgian fashion brand - started by the West-Flemish family Delfosse - has grown over the past 30 years into a leading fashion company with more than 95 shops all over Belgium. Earlier this year, Bel&Bo renewed all the cash registers in their shops and they were happy to donate the used cash register PCs, 210 in total, to an organisation such as Close The Gap.
"As a 100% Belgian family business, we want to contribute to better lives and reduce the negative impact we have on the planet as much as possible.
It is important that waste ceases to exist and that together we ensure that things get reused, we must evolve towards a circular economy. Thanks to Close The Gap, these refurbished PCs get a second life in developing countries in Africa and other parts of the world, creating a positive impact in the lives of the people who need it. A win-win if you ask us!"
Contribute to a circular economy yourself and donate your IT, just like Bel&Bo!
