THE STORY:

Without computer's and Laptops Crowdrise would not be possible. Let's give a child or two the chance to make a difference, while We make a difference for Them! @OLPC is also on twitter!

From the OLPC website:

"Mission Statement: To create educational opportunities for the world's poorest children by providing each child with a rugged, low-cost, low-power, connected laptop with content and software designed for collaborative, joyful, self-empowered learning. When children have access to this type of tool they get engaged in their own education. They learn, share, create, and collaborate. They become connected to each other, to the world and to a brighter future.


One Laptop per Child is not about a machine, it’s about a movement; and we’d love you to be a part of it. The first and most important way you can join in is to donate one or more laptops at amazon.com/xo. But there’s lots of other ways to participate; you can host your own fundraising drive, help at a nearby pilot, or simply tell your friends about the project and help spread the word.

Most of the more than one billion children in the emerging world don’t have access to adequate education. The XO laptop is our answer to this crisis—and after nearly two years, we know it’s working. Almost everywhere the XO goes, school attendance increases dramatically as the children begin to open their minds and explore their own potential. One by one, a new generation is emerging with the power to change the world.

$199 gets you one and someone else a chance at a better education! For more information, please visit their official website on all ways to help at http://laptop.org/en or follow @OLPC on Twitter.
