Almost $2000 in 2 days campaigningApril 4, 2008 9:23 am freesoftware, gimp, inkscape, libre graphics meeting, scribus
I woke up this morning to find out that we are fast approaching the $2000 level in our fundraising campaign! As I write this, we have now raised $1780 in the two days since the campaign opened on the 2nd of April, bringing us to 9% of our goal amount, with 14 days left in the campaign.
As of tomorrow, the community will be listed on the Libre Graphics Meeting website as a silver sponsor, the same level as Google, Intel and the Free Software Foundation, and as we continue to pass the sponsorship levels, we will move the community to Gold, and then to Cornerstone sponsor levels.
I am deeply in awe of the generosity of the people who are donating, and deeply impressed by the passion of the user community of these applications which we’re helping improve by hosting this conference.
Thank you all very much!
Update: One hour after posting this, Sebastian Bober pushed us over the $2000 mark – we’re now at over 10% of our objective!
