Free OLPC for someone who needs it

I'm going through the replies that I received and I'm going to figure
out who's getting the laptop here in a few minutes, or at least the
Wow, I feel like a big jerk now. I've got replies from all these great
people, doing great stuff, and I've only got one laptop to give.
After I'm done, I'm going to go over to the OLPC Wiki and see about
writing a page for others like myself who bought an XO via the B1G1
program and would like to donate theirs to a worthy cause.
I bought mine, showed it around my office, convinced one or two others
to buy or donate one, and now I've got nothing to do with it. I don't
have much time to contribute to the project. I already work in
non-profit cancer research, so there is only so much I can do with my time.
