Welcome to, home of Learning To Be The Light Project (LTBTL), based in Hoover, Alabama

Your gift of just $12 allows us to install Windows 7 Professional AND Microsoft Office 2010 Home and Business on one of the computers that we refurbish.  If you'd like to help a deserving student, simply click on the below GoFundMe image.  No amount is too big or too small!  Thanks!


LTBTL is dedicated to one goal:  making sure that eligible students have the technological resources needed in order to succeed in today's high-tech school environment.

LTBTL is a Microsoft Registered Refurbisher. 

As our site grows, it will outline how we are taking in used computers and other PC equipment, refurbishing it, and installing it in the homes of low-income families who's students attend the Hoover City School district.

If you have a computer, or computer equipment, such as an LCD, aka "flatscreen", monitor (sorry, we can't use CRT - tube type -  monitors), that you would like to give* to LTBTL, please send an e-mail to .  We will pick it up, destroy any data on the hard drive, and refurbish it for the use of an eligible student.  If you'd rather drop it off, you may do so Monday-Friday from 8:30am - 4 pm at the Artists on the Bluff office (formerly the Bluff Park Community School), located at 571 Park Avenue, Hoover, AL  35226.  If you have any restore disks that came with the computer, please include them.  See the Project Summary page for more details.
