See XO Laptop: Give One. Get One.

Give One Get One

Between November 12 and November 26, OLPC is offering a Give One Get One program in North America. 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 all U.S. donors who participate in the Give One Get One program, T-Mobile is offering one year of complimentary HotSpot access. Find out more.

Please be aware that we will make every effort to deliver the XO laptops by the holidays, but quantities are limited. Early purchasers have the best chance of receiving their XO laptops in time for the holidays, but we cannot guarantee timing.

Thanks for Sprint for making this generous offer. Thought I didn’t need any additional encouragement to get an XO, perhaps Sprint’s generosity will encourage others to acquire two XO laptops for just $400, one for the world and one for your family.

What better holiday gift than to donate an XO laptop to some deserving young student on the Far Side of the World?
