This year's G1G1 giving program is incredibly important to the community and to OLPC itself. Last year we received over 80,000 donations which have helped seed deployments in Mongolia, Haiti, and Rwanda. This year we can do better, and you can help bring laptops to even more kids.

Contributors

getting involved : please add your name below and join our grassroots list to discuss how to gather and tag media related to OLPC so that others can find it.

Community involvement

How? The simple answer is to tell people about OLPC, and about our giving program! In person, in mass or on the internet. Together we can reach a lot of people who still don't know about our efforts at all; and can help some of them realize their own dreams.

Media bundle

There are a variety of resources for those who want to create or recreate their own media for the upcoming event. Many communities including flickr and OLPC SF have created amazing media that is available under a free license.

Todo:

  • Pull together available resources for OLPC media in one place and let people create more awesomeness from it.
  • Set up a link collection to resource pools, seed a torrent for a media pack of sources with attribution/license details
  • Torrent seeding : There are 8gb of freely-licensed Sound samples available for use with XOs and other tools. There are tons of great sounds contained therein, but the existing seeders are usually offline; this needs reseeding to spread the message to other sound enthusiasts.

Volunteering

There's going to be a lot of really exciting work in community advertising, media creation and community building in the next 6 weeks. We're going to have days when the local community can come work with us in the office and collaborate. If you're going to be working on related projects in your area, consider holding an open working session too!

And send a line to volunteer@laptop.org if there are specific things you want to help out with.
