Win & Give a Laptop - CLOSED


How would you like to win a laptop computer for your child? Better yet how would you like to help a child in Africa get one too? Well Betty Crocker Fruit Flavored Snacks has teamed up with One Laptop per Child to make this happen.
One Laptop per Child is an organization that creates educational opportunities for the world's poorest children by providing each child with a rugged, low cost, low power connected laptop with content and software designed for collaborative, joyful self-empowering learning. Here is a short video that show the great work that One Laptop per Child is doing in Africa.




Now through May 30, 2010 one laptop will be awarded to a U.S. winner and for each U.S. winner another laptop will be donated to a child in Africa. In specially marked boxes of your children's favorite fruit flavored snacks - including Fruit Roll-Ups, Gushers, Fruit by the Foot and Stickerz & Shapes - there will be a unique online code. This code simply needs to be entered on www.WinOneGiveOne.com to see if you are a winner

Betty Crocker through MyBlogSpark sent me a box of Fruit by the Foot and a box of Fruit Roll-Ups so I could try my luck at winning a laptop. MyBlogSpark also made a $25 donation to One Laptop per Child on my behalf. They generously gave me 2 boxes of fruit flavored snacks so one of my lucky readers could have their chance to win.

  1. My little girl helps me when we know of a family in need we will cook meals to take to them. I have also helped her go through her toys and clothes to give to some other children that don't have as much as she.

  2. The best thing I've done to encourage my child to help others is to always lead by example and be kind and caring to my fellow human beings.

  16. My son is doing some volunteer work and donates some of his allowance money whenever there is a collection at school, such as the recent one for the Haitian earthquake victims.

  17. I am constantly teaching my son to give to others, and volunteer. We recycle cans at our house to help the enviroment. When we take walks around our neighborhood we take a trash bag and pick them up from the streets. He was going to use the money to buy himself something. But this yr, he decided to donated the funds to help others. The money will be giving to our local food pantry. I guess sI thought him, is actually sticking.

  26. Christina - xristya@rock.com - I told Sarah about this contest and I ALWAYS have her share everything with others! It's important that children know that there are people all over the world who are hungry or without life essentials and that we must help them, as this could have been (through fate) us!
