Stories Donation Drive

Upgrade your technology over the holiday season? Before you throw your old laptops away, consider donating them to Texas Folklife this holiday season!


Stories from Deep in the Heart welcomes donations to support our workshops with public school students in Austin and beyond. As we adapt our award-winning program to meet the needs of remote learning, we aim to provide all the tools necessary to make audio storytelling and podcast production accessible and engaging for all students, teachers, and community members – regardless of their access to technology at home. Listen to examples of student-produced stories on our Soundcloud.


We are particularly seeking donations that will aid with computer-based home podcast recording and editing, such as laptops (Mac OS or Windows), over-the-ear headphones, and USB microphones. 


To donate equipment to Stories from Deep in the Heart, please contact Gabi Kane, Operations Manager, by email at or by phone (512) 441-9255.
