This is the coolest way to give I have seen yet. My son has been asking for a laptop for a while now. He is actually saving money. Although at this rate, he may have enough to get one in the year 2020. At least, at the current laptop prices. UNTIL NOW!! Not only can he get one sooner than he thought, but he can give one in return to a child in a developing country. (And get a tax deduction..that's just not as important to a 14 year old)
