    This story/video is so sweet. I think that Zimi was very excited. I hope that more kids continue to get these laptops so that they will want to go to school. With all the features it will be a great chance for people to get education. Even though it might be slower there will still be kids learning. Therefore I believe that this is a very good idea.

    I thought it was so nice that how thankful Zimi was for his laptop. He really appricated it. It is also very useful to them because they don’t have the paper and pencils that we do. I hope other kids like there laptops as much as Zimi did!

I think these children are more happy than they have ever been and that they will take grear care of these lap tops. This one child is very happy and you can tell. Just by looking at the smiles on the kids faces you can teell that they feel great and as happy as can be!

    I feel bad for the kids that live there because the look like they are very poor. I am glad that they get these things. This reminds me of Toms because if you buy Toms they give Toms to a kid who does not have shoes. I hope a lot of people buy these so more of the kids get them.

    This vidio really touched me because its important that we pay atention to the less fortainant. I liked this vidio because of it shows that you need to give more and take less.

    It is really good that Amazon is donating laptops to children in “Third World Countries”. I bet they appreciate them way more then we do. They aren’t spoiled like we are. They are smart children, but just don’t really have an opportunity to learn. We do, but some of us just choose to whine, complain, and be plain lazy. We are really lazy. What would we do if we had no cellphones, land-phones, electricity, plumbing, & computers? We would practically die. Be appreciative of your cellphone, and don’t take things for granted. Good video.

    I hope the rule changes about not having cell phone.Some times you really need them.

      We do not need cellphones whatsoever. We are just spoiled. I cannot believe you are complaining about no cellphones allowed at school. It isn’t important. Why would we need cellphones? So you can play games, surf the web, and TEXT. Texting is making us lazy and stupid.

      Well, apparently, we need to have greater education in this country. What would we do without spell check? We need to have proper grammar, spelling, and punctuation.

    It is good that they got laptops. It seemed as though the people there could not afford enough laptops for everybody. It is good that somebody donated those laptops. Now they can learn better.

    I think that is really sweet. If i were the person who donated it I would be happy to know Zimi was happy. I think everyone should do that. Zimi was very thankful for the computer and she was very happy. I think it is cool because they showed how many kids have computers that people donated to a very poor country. People gave them to them not just so they and play gmaes, but so they can use it educationally.
