Its great that these collective prizes will impact so many lives in a powerful, positive way. Techie Diva has teamed up with HP and Microsoft to offer our readers the chance to win $6,000 worth of electronics. The HP Magic Giveaway is all about sharing the magic, and ONE lucky winner will win the entire package on December 12, 2008 right here on Techie Diva. We wish we could divide the bundle and have several winners instead, but we can’t. The good news is several other sites are holding a similar contest on different dates, so you still have a chance to win until December 22, 2008.

If I was fortunate enough to win, I would love to be able to gift a computer to my daughter who is working diligently in establishing independent functionality as a young, autistic adult. Our large family (includes 5 kids) has very limited financial resources, and having her own computer would be therapeutic and allow her to blog, take online courses,network socially and really take advantage of all the positive attributes that the internet has to offer.
I would also love to gift a needy family through the Endependence Center (http://www.endependence.org/) a wonderful, local organization in my area that has been instrumental in providing transitional services for my daughter and many other families with disabilities.
Lastly, I would love to win a laptop for myself (we have one old desktop for our 7 member family) and gift a laptop to a co-worker & close friend who is a struggling, single, young Mom. She and I are both nurses at at a Local hospital here in Virginia. We have promised to see each other through acquiring our degrees together (we're enrolled together at Indiana State University's online RN-BSN program) and this would be a blessed and most useful gift.
