'Tis the Season

I just ran across this cool inspirational story.

HP has a "magic giveaway" where they give top bloggers $6,000 in HP products to review, and in turn, each blogger runs their own contest to give this equipment away.

Liz Henry's winner is Sara Moriera, a Portuguese professor who teaches computer engineering in East Timor. Sara is using the computers and other equipment to help young women in East Timor.

What cool women these are to be able to use technology to help educate other women who are in the most difficult of circumstances. What a difference the computers and other equipment will make for them.

Now that makes me feel this really is the season of giving (not that all year shouldn't be). Hooray for HP, Liz and Sara.

Thanks for linking up - I know Sara and Ana's project will need more support as it unfolds.

There are still other chances to win more computers - I hope they all go to people who will put them to good use!
