For the next two weeks, you can buiy a laptop, and get a laptop. That is – buy a $200 laptop for a child in a developing nation, and get one of these laptops for your very own. Plus a year’s worth of T-Mobile HotSpot Wifi Access. Since a year of HotSpot access generally costs approximately $360, and you’re getting a $200 tax deduction, one could look at it as coming out ahead.
Between November 12 and November 26, OLPC is offering a Give One Get One program in North America. This is the first time the revolutionary XO laptop has been made available to the general public. For a donation of $399, one XO laptop will be sent to empower a child in a developing nation and one will be sent to the child in your life in recognition of your contribution. $200 of your donation is tax-deductible (your $399 donation minus the fair market value of the XO laptop you will be receiving).
For all U.S. donors who participate in the Give One Get One program, T-Mobile is offering one year of complimentary HotSpot access.
