I donated to this nonprofit today - $399 gets one special child's laptop that goes to a child in a developing country, and one that comes to me (for my grandson). This is not a commercial enterprise.There is no support for these machines and only a 30-day warranty. But they are built to last and many are already out there, in use. They are loaded with non-commercial, open-source software especially developed for children and for different languages. They also include wi-fi. ANd use alternative energy sources, including solar.
I told Joey about this and showed him the picture and he is excited. I hope he likes it when it comes. Of course just the fact that he can go online with it will be enough.Oh, T-mobile sweetened the deal by offering a year of their hot spots (worth more than the laptop) for those of us taking advantage of the buy one get one deal.
Of course you don't have to go for the deal. You can just send $200 for a laptop for a child in another country and you've done your good deed!
