Will the G1G1 Program end in December 2008?

Postby Jumpolo » Fri Dec 12, 2008 7:11 pm

Hello,

I just received a XO laptop through the G1G1 program and I will be giving it to a Brazilian child. I was thinking to get another one but I would rather wait to January since I just got this one and I have so much in the budget for this year :cry: .

Will the G1G1 initiative end at the end of December or will I be able to get another one in January?

According to what I read, last year it was possible to get a XO only until the end of December. How about this year (2008)?

I would appreciate if you can let me know.

Thanks!
Jumpolo

Hello,

I just went to the amazon.com page that states that the give one get one laptop program ended on December 31st. Is it not possible to get one anymore?

If it is ongoing what steps must I take to participate? The amazon site makes no mention of G1G1 except as a link that returns to the same page. Following the "donate" path I get to the point where I can order one or more but there is no indication that I will get anything myself.
