I love what OLPC is doing. To further their cause, I am requesting donations (from Gadgetreview readers) to be put towards an OLPC computer. Until 11/26, OLPC is “offering a Give One Get One program in the United States and Canada.” So if you donate (assuming we meet our goal) we’ll be able to provide a laptop to a child in a 3rd world country and give a laptop to an “inner city kid” here in LA. I am putting in $50 to start the donations, which means we’ll need another $349 from the Gadgetreview fan base. If we don’t accomplish our goal before 11/26 then we’ll just put it towards one laptop, which is $200. If we don’t reach $200 then we’ll donate the remainder of the money to another good cause (see below example). If we achieve above $200, but don’t reach $399 then I’ll donate the difference to another good cause, such as Step Up. The current offer, which ends 11/26, also includes one year of T-Mobile Hot Spot Access, which I’ll give away to one lucky donor!
Please send your PayPal donations to firstname.lastname@example.org. Helping one kid could save 1000s!
To insure that I’m not pocketing the money, I’ll post proof of the donation in December.
Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
