>From now through December 31, 2007, OLPC is offering a Give One Get One
program in the United States and Canada. 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. Up to $200 of your donation may be
tax-deductible (your $399 donation minus the fair market value of the XO
laptop you will be receiving).
