One Laptop Per Child Foundation: Get One Give One promotion.

http://www.laptopgiving.org/en/index.php

if you get a bit of free time, check this out. you pay $399, and you get a neat little laptop running on an open-source unix-based OS, and with the money they also give one to a child in a developing nation. on top of that, $200 of that money is then considered a charitable donation and can be written off come tax time.

i've been following the OLPC Foundation since it's inception and i think it's a really great idea, and this is a wonderful way to raise the capital needed to get the manufacturing process kicked off and lower costs even more for the children.

i've already ordered mine. im looking forward to getting to see what all it can do.

they're only doing it for 15 days, and these arent usually available to the general public, so its a unique little gadget to have or to give to your kids too.

everyone wins. that's the best kind of charity.
