You call Dell and get the 1,000 free laptops, and I'll call DHL and get
them shipped for free.
Keep me posted.

>>The Kenyan Transhumanist Association is about to open up a "Knowledge
>>House", and they have put out a call for laptops to be donated to the
>>cause. The Knowledge House will help spread science education and
>>Transhumanist memes in Kenya.
>>I have a laptop I'm willing to send over to benefit the cause, but
>>unfortunately the shipping costs are simply beyond my means right now.
>>It takes a minimum of $148 to ship it there.
>>That's where you come in.
>>I am selling my copy of Carl Sagan's excellent television series
>>"Cosmos" on eBay right now. It's a VHS copy of the entire series, in a
>>nice box set. There's a little wear on two of the box's corners, but
>>other than that the tapes are in great shape.
>>I'm selling it with the hope that I can offset the cost of shipping the
>>laptop to the KTA. I've listed a "buy it now" price that will exactly
>>cover the price of shipping, but if the bidding gets higher (and I hope
>>it does, for their sake), I'll just send any excess along as a gift.
>>Yes, you can definitely buy Cosmos for less money. This is entirely a
>>gimmick to raise funds to send a badly-needed laptop computer to some
>>fellow Transhumanists in a place where both the technology and
>>Transhumanist ideas are badly needed. Your money will be directly
