Give One Get One
Give One Get One (G1G1) is an initiative of the One Laptop per Child (OLPC) to increase the distribution of its XO-1 laptop to developing nations by allowing a person to obtain an XO-1 by buying two devices: one for the purchaser and the other being sent to a developing nation. The first program ran from November 2007 to 31 December 2007 and was available to U.S. and Canadian residents only. November 2008 saw the program relaunched until 31 December 2008, extended to residents of EU member states, Switzerland and Russia, and the parliamentary republic of Turkey. No Give One Get One action took place in 2009, 2010, or 2011. Although there has been a Win One Give One through Betty Crocker snacks.
In some jurisdictions part, or all, of the cost of the two laptops may be tax-deductible.
