Give one/ Get one. [via]

“Thank you for your interest in One Laptop Per Child. Our mission is to provide a means for learning, self-expression and exploration to the nearly two billion children of the developing world with little or no access to education. While children are by nature eager for knowledge, many countries have insufficient resources to devote to education—sometimes less than $20 a year per child. Imagine the potential that could be unlocked by giving every child in the world the tools they need to learn, no matter who they are, no matter where they live, no matter how little they may have.

If you’d like to donate an XO laptop today, simply click the donation button on the right, above the photo. A donation of $200 will pay for and deliver one XO laptop to a child in a developing nation, $400 will pay for and deliver two XO laptops, and so on.

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.

Once again, thank you. We sincerely hope you’ll join our growing community of people working to create a connected, educated, enlightened future for the world’s most essential resource—its children.”

Nicholas Negroponte
Founder and Chairman of One Laptop Per Child

Do not leave comments asking me how to obtain one of these computers, as In will mark it as spam. 



  1. One LapTop per child.

    I would like to give one/get one laptop to 2 unfortunate children in Malaysia as a gifts. Meaning to say, I would like both and then will take them back there in Jaunary, 2008. How do I go about getting them from here in USA. Currently I am living in California.

    Thank you, lily Hee Cameron

    Not to be a skeptic, but if you live in CA now, why is your IP address say Colorado?
