We are proud to start a fundraising to achieve the modest goal of equip one of the local initiatives we’ve been reporting for over two years. We present to you OLPC News 100 Laptop Fundraising Drive. Let's raise $20,000 in donations for one hundred XO-1 laptops to be sent to the best locally-organized OLPC learning club!
Pledge at least $100 on the OLPC News Fundraising Drive site
If/when we reach $20,000, vote for the best program to get 60-100 laptops
If we don't reach $20,000, then everyone's pledge is nullified and we just watch others Give Many.
Organize a local OLPC learning club in your community
Send us a post on how you'd use 60 laptops to enhance education
If you win, pass out laptops with a smile
Now don't think we'll be passing out laptops to just anyone. Each local initiative will be debated on OLPC News based on what are the concrete realities and how well established is the curriculum implementation, power grid and internet access on each pilot.
