Give one, get one:
"Between November 12 and November 26, 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. $200 of your donation is tax-deductible (your $399 donation minus the fair market value of the XO laptop you will be receiving)."For more on this program (which like all has limitations--some may be on Ebay etc, but on net is a wonderful attempt to help those in need and raise them from poverty see this NY Times piece/video.
