This a late post but check it out anyways...
The innovative idea for the "One Laptop Per Child" (OLPC) program was founded by Nicholas Negroponte, to give children in developing countries an educational opportunity that they would never have. Last year, the students of Notre Dame Regional Secondary fundraised to purchase an OLPC XO. They purchased two units, one of which went to a student in a third world country.
On November 17th OLPC will launch their Give One, Get One campaign. There are many ways how everyone can help:
1. Tell 100 friends.
2. Bring your laptop to work or school.
Hopefully, by telling your friends and family about the Give One, Get One campaign, they will want to help. Surprisingly, there are about more than 100,000 members with XOs around the world.
