Microsoft Canada has launched its Send Cool Tools to School program with help from software retailers across the country.

From Aug. 1 to Oct. 15, for any customer purchase of $130 of any two or more Microsoft Home products the company will donate a Microsoft Home software product to the school of that customer’s choice.

The donated software includes Creative Writer, Composer Series, Art Gallery, Dangerous Creatures and more.

More than 1.6 million pamphlets will be distributed to schools to help explain the promotion.

Microsoft expects to donate more than $200,000 worth of software to schools across the country.
