Give one get one.    This is so good!    I had another thought for today's blog until I saw this program that is so important and is time limited.

Basically, OLPC (One Laptop Per Child) is a project to equip the world's poorest children with a learning tool.    Founded by MIT professor Nicholas Negroponte as a vehicle to promote global education by tapping into children's innate capacities to learn, share, and create on their own, its aim is to provide them a tool with which children in even the most remote regions of the globe will be given the opportunity to tap into their own potential, to be exposed to a whole world of ideas, and to contribute to a more productive and saner world community.

That tool is the XO laptop.

You can help.    All you have to do is put off the DNA test you were thinking about and invest in the well being of the poorest and least advantaged of our world's children.    The whole concept can be examined here.

Surely you can also think of a child that you know for your own 'Get One' laptop.    I did.

Here's the link to contribute.
