Give One, Get One (Laptop per Child)

Hello from NYC and the NWP/NCTE conference. I will be blogging at the RCWP blog throughout the weekend.

Yet, as we get ready to pack it in (we found free wifi at a coffee shop that is soon closing), I got an email from an RCWP TC about the open purchasing time on the One Laptop Per Child Initiative. You can purchase your laptop from now until November 26th. As we prepare for Christmas purchases, I am seriously considering this for my children and the philanthropic mission that it supports. I hope that you do, too.
