G1G1 For the Rest of Us…

Category: OLPCClevergirl @ 6:22 pm

Over on the Official OLPC blog, SJ et. al. have finally posted some details of how to participate in G1G1 if you live outside of the US or UK. Read all about it here.

You can see that Canada is included, but coming from the UK it will cost us more (exchange rate craziness), include a hefty shipping price, and come with a UK plug which is not compatible with a Canadian plug (you’ll need an adapter).

Personally, if I were a Canadian looking to get a G1G1 this year, I would not yet give up on the hope that kissing cousins in the US could get one for us through the Amazon Campaign in the US.

I wonder if they (or my new found Friend Official OLPC Blogger SJ) will let us know if using G1G1 the international way will again mean that we are not eligible to write half of this cost off as a charitable donation?

If you get one this year and you live in Ottawa-Gatineau… Join us!.
