Share The Magic

I've been entering as many of the HP Magic Giveaway contests as I can. Winning over $6,000.00 worth of computer gear would be so cool. Over at Moosh in Indy, her contest asks us to share how we would use the technology and who we would share it with and why.

First, the MediaSmart Connect is getting connected to my flat screen TV. I don't even have HD so it would be the most advanced piece of equipment to be connected to my TV.

I would keep one of the laptops because I don't have one. I'm not sure which one because they're both cool.

Ever since hearing about this contest, I have been thinking about who I would share this with. I could give part of it to family but they all pretty much have computers. I'm not really involved with any local organizations right now so I don't know which would be in need. Then it hit me...

I don't know if they do this where you live but around here they have angel trees. The trees are placed at local businesses and have tags with wishes from children in needy families. They mostly include clothes and toys but I would find one who is reaching for it and asking for a computer (or one that just pulled at my heartstrings) and leave one of the laptops for them... anonymously. I may even do it twice and donate the TouchSmart and the printer to another family.
