> Dear Media Lab,
> We have an opportunity to make a difference in Haiti within the next  
> few
> days by donating laptops and netbooks for use as part of the 1000 Jobs
> project, which provides work in Haiti translating SMS messages so  
> they can
> be used to direct aid workers (and helps to build long-term  
> employment).
> Leila Janah, founder of the Samasource (http://www.samasource.org/) is
> visiting the Media Lab this Friday morning the 12th and has a State
> Department flight to Haiti on Monday - which means we can get the  
> computers
> delivered in the short term. If you have a laptop - used or new -  
> capable of
> running a browser, please consider donating it to this worthy (non- 
> profit)
> cause by bringing it to the Center for Future Civic Media before  
> Friday
> morning. You can leave it anytime before then with:
> Lorrie Lejeune E15-349
> Christina Xu E15-348
> For more information, please read the project proposal here:
