I have written about the One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) initiative before … and you may remember that for a SHORT TIME ONLY, the cool OLPC is available for purchase in North America.

That’s right, as of yesterday, the XO Giving site allows you to purchase two of these cool laptops for $400 … one being donated to a child in a developing nation, the second being sent to YOUR child at home. The offer is open for 15 days!

But, listen, if you are a school buyer and you want to purchase new PCs for your kids next year, consider the OLPC and have double the impact on the lives of children — locally and globally. Now, that’s really a great idea!
