These are 2 ideas are inspired by Hurricane Harvey and other natural disasters. What if Dell engineers traveled to communities (globally) that have been hit by natural disasters and helped people:

1) Recover seemingly lost data from their devices e.g. the "cake eating" photos from their child's first birthday party  
2) Provide dumpsters for clean up crews to dispose of electronic waste responsiblity.

Details of ensuring someone "owns" the device they are seeking to retrieve data from would need to be addressed, as well as other logistics to ensure the materials could be reused by Dell Corp.  I believe this is a great "feel good" effort to kickstart. It is a great way to get e-materials are routed to Dell for reuse/purpose. 

I welcome your thoughts. And, I'd love to help. Please let me know! Thanks!
