Give one Get One Laptop per Child for Christmas


OLPC XO-1 computer

One Laptop per Child (OLPC) foundation extends “Give one, Get one” program until December 31, 2007 in the USA and Canada.

Wow that’s pretty cool to make a 200$ donation and then receive the XO-1 Laptop for only 200$ (a $399 donation, $200 of which is tax-deductible).

I think it’s a wonderful gift for Christmas that people can do.

Think about it : you give for disadvantaged child in a developing nation, and you also receive your christmas gift.

The first countries to place big orders for the XO laptops were Uruguay and Mongolia. Today we learn that Peruvian government has signed a contract to purchase 260,000 units and Mexican billionaire Carlos Slim has ordered 50,000 laptops for distribution in Mexico..

To date donations to the “Give one, Get one” offer are about $2 million per day.

To learn more and participate in the Give One Get One program, go now to http://www.laptopgiving.org or call 1-877-70-LAPTOP (1-877-705-2786).

I am just considering to give one buy one (for my son) for Christmas. I have to convince my wife!

For those wondering what are the Technical Specs of the Xo Computer.
