30 Days to Becoming More Socially Conscious- Tip #1: Give a $200 laptop, change a child’s life
Today is our kickoff tip to help you do your part in creating a more equitable and sustainable world.
Perhaps you’ve heard of the One Laptop per Child Program, perhaps you haven’t. If you haven’t, their goal is simple: to spread the magic of computers to less fortunate children around the world. Their mission is:
“To create educational opportunities for the world’s poorest children by providing each child with a rugged, low-cost, low-power, connected laptop with content and software designed for collaborative, joyful, self-empowered learning. When children have access to this type of tool they get engaged in their own education. They learn, share, create, and collaborate. They become connected to each other, to the world and to a brighter future.”
What can you do?
Spend two hundred dollars and give a laptop. Can’t afford that? Well, how about donating any amount to support the cause? Can’t afford that? Well, how about sharing the cause with someone who could potentially support it? No cost to you. Just a priceless sentiment of joy knowing you did something that could potentially change someone’s life.
Go ahead, we dare you to take action, do something, and make a difference!
