Doing good with laptops?

I heard about One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) last week and it's doing good in quite an interesting tech-saavy way. This organisation aims to have one laptop per child:

To create 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-empowered learning.
People can help out by paying for a laptop, being a translator, providing tech support to kids/adults, or even helping to develop software (games, tools, programs)! Very cool : )
It also seems that people can help by testing the laptops to make sure they run ok before they're given away (someone had mentioned it to us). There's workshops in Wellington doing this, so it must be quite widespread round the world?

Plunket tees as seen in New Idea magazine

Get this week's New Idea magazine to check out the exclusive spread about the Plunket t-shirts and the celebs who've kindly helped out with this campaign! Hurray! : )

...and you can buy the magnet too : )

It's been a mad week!

Last week was a little crazy as we semi-moved to a temporary new location – which we will be moving out of in a month’s time (here’s hoping!). So it feels like the business is working out of boxes at the moment and I am running about like more of a headless chook than usual (and the usual is probably bad enough!) : )
The Plunket t-shirt collection will be launched in exactly TWO weeks and we/Plunket are pretty excited about it. So many people have put in so much work into this new t-shirt campaign! Seeing boxes of the tees is quite rewarding in itself – the real product always looks/feels better than just seeing a concept onscreen.
There will be an exclusive retailer in each of the major New Zealand cities for the childrens range: Baby Divine in Dunedin, Milk in Christchurch, Kirkcaldie & Stains in Wellington, Cutie in Hamilton, and Sugarfree in Auckland. Check out their details on our stockists page. Hooray for the retailers and their support!! Support them too by sending your friends to them to buy the range from 30 March onwards. Haha, we would love to hear that every single retailer has sold out : )
Ok…well counting down now…
