One Laptop per Child (OLPC) Give One Get One XO Laptop starts today.

In September OLPC announced that they are offering XO laptops starting on November 12th to individuals who live in the USA or Canada.

During the two-week period November 12-26 you can buy a XO laptop for US$399. Your purchase buys two laptops. One of them is going to be donated for you.
Therefore $200 of the Give One Get One contribution is tax-deductible as a charitable donation.

Masi Oka, star of NBC's hit ensemble drama series "Heroes," recently assumed the added role of goodwill ambassador for One Laptop per Child. "Anyone can be a 'hero' in real life," said Oka. "Participating in the Give One Get One program is a form of heroism - going above and beyond ordinary circumstances to help another human being in need. I encourage everyone to do what they can to support the work of One Laptop per Child and its efforts to improve children's education and connectivity to the world."
