One Laptop per Child (OLPC) Relaunches Give One Get One Program with Amazon.com

If you have been reading this blog for a while, you know how passionate I am about the One Laptop per Child (OLPC) program.  The notion of giving kids access to the tools and information they need to learn and create is so exciting.  OLPC does this through their inexpensive XO laptop.

Check out this AWESOME commerical they just launched for OLPC. It tells the story of a OLPC user Zimi.  SO cool.

Well, once again, you have the opportunity to give a child in another part of the world a laptop and change the world by unlocking the world for them.

OLPC has re-launched their Give One Get One program. This time they’re doing it through Amazon.com  You can just make a donation of a laptop for $199 or donate one and get one for yourself for $399.

So, what are you waiting for?  Make a donation NOW!

Update: Here’s the video of Zimi from YouTube.

    >> Even if it is far away from the initial $100 per laptop (to be purchased by developing countries goverments) it remains a wonderful project.

    I LOVE it!
    As I give away 10% of my business benefits to Charity this obviously a cause I’ll support…
