OLPC Launches New Give Many: 100-1,000 XO Laptops

   
   
   
   
   

One Laptop Per Child has revamped its troubled Give Many program. Gone is the vague promise, often unfulfilled, to ship out XO's to needy lands, and in its place is what looks to be an easy and clear process:

Give Many XO Laptops today!
  1. Designate the school or deployment of your choice
  2. Donate 100 to 1,000 XO laptops at $259 each
  3. Get increased levels of OLPC participation and support

OLPC is even offering to co-sponsor donations to select countries. Donations to the 50 Least Developed Countries (LDCs), and to OLPC partner countries (Uruguay, Peru, Haiti, Rwanda, Ethiopia, Ghana, and the UN Palestine Refugee Camps) receive a $50 discount - XO's will only be $219 each.

Give Many participants receive invitations to a deployment workshop, on-line technical support and materials, spare XO parts, and the opportunity to participate in the global OLPC community.

I just wish it was Amazon.com that was handling Give Many. Something about writing to [email protected] makes me feel like we've seen this rabbit hole before.

Wait a minute! Doesn't this mean the XO price has increased?! And that Give 1 Get 1 really is a "Almost Give 1".

Presumably the extra $60 per XO is to cover shipping to anywhere in the world.
