See how you can help to give every child a laptop…

Starting November 12, One Laptop Per Child will be offering a Give 1 Get 1 Program for a brief window of time in North America. For $399, you will be purchasing two XO laptops—one that will be sent to empower a child to learn in a developing nation, and one that will be sent to your child at home. If you’re interested in Give 1 Get 1, we’ll be happy to send you a reminder email. Just sign up in the box to the left and you’ll receive your reminder prior to the November 12 launch date.

    THis is very interesting. I am still not sure that this is the priority for these children. Good idea, although the charity may be a little misplaced.

  2. I agree with Tobeme. Altruism is meaningful, yet sending computers to people who don’t know what to do with them or have no real use for them may not be the best strategy to save the world or bring it closer together. Why encourage mediating when you have the option to communicate more directly?

    I think this is a great idea. I would be very interested in this program.

    I think it would be a fantastic idea, for those who want to participate in the program have placed on a donated computer, the doners name and email address, so we might develope bonds around the world. The computer would go to a child with a friend/supporter/financial backer’s name so if both parties wanted to communcate, they could….forming “Bonds arcoss the Universe.”

    Is this program still available. I heard that they extended the deadline but I did not hear when the deadline is. Does anyone know if I could get one for my daughter and then have one for a child in another country. It would be really cool if my daughter and the recipient of the other computer could become cyber pals.

  6. Please send participation information on “A Laptop for Every Child.” Thank you.
