Donations to FSF - A Challenge to Other LUG's

Nov 26, 1999, 21:57 (2 Talkback[s])

To show our appreciation to the Free Software Foundation for their efforts in coordinating the development of free software, the Vancouver GNU/Linux Users Group (http://www.linux.bc.ca/ ) recently made a donation of US$650. (~CDN$960.)

Local companies (Coalescent Technologies and Faximum Software) also joined in with contributions of their own, raising the combined total to US$1350. (~CDN$2000.)

A search through the ThankGNUS page

http://www.gnu.org/thankgnus/thankgnus.html

doesn't show many other LUG's.

Since the FSF has played a pivotal role in the evolution of Linux, we encourage other LUG's to follow through with donations of their own. Of course, donations to other groups which develop free software (e.g., The XFree86 Project http://www.xfree86.org/donations.html ) are just as acceptable.
