Thinking about Thanksgiving?

This was very nearly a "Things from My Inbox" post because I'm making so little and owe so much that the notion of donating even $50 to charity seems a stretch. But the idea is a nice one, and maybe there are folks better off than me out there who hadn't heard about this. So if you're trying to think of something good to do for whatever holiday you might celebrate, or you think that Thanksgiving is nice, but Giving is even better, this is for you.

Check out One Laptop, One Child's "Give One/Get One" campaign.

I wish I'd known about it earlier, as I think it would've made for an interesting community service project for students - ideally, the free laptops could be given to people in our community. I don't think, however, that I've got time to try to organize that before this particular promotion ends.

I think this is a wonderful idea. I'm skipping the actual Thanksgiving dinner this year (unless I make that cranberry-wild rice salad I love so well), because I have a major presentation the Monday right after Thanksgiving. But this is a nice way to get in the right spirit.
