Many of you may have already heard of - the non-profit in the bay area that Grant, Mark, myself and others have been working with to deploy Ubuntu in several bay area public schools, our project page for it is located here:

As you can see from the "Current Activity" section of that page Partimus has a fundraiser coming up on Wednesday, December 15th from 5-7PM.

So if you're interested in Partimus but haven't been able to volunteer for any of our events yet, feel free to come out to this! There is a $25 recommended donation, but you can also do a donation-based ticket if you want to give more, or opt for a free ticket if you're curious but unable to make a financial nvestment or wish to bring a hardware donation (specs required are on the Partimus donation page).

More details and sign-up here:

"We will not be asking for too much of your time. We will only be asking you to share your contacts with us, and help us do outreach to get your friends and neighbors to make small but meaningful financial contributions to our efforts.

One of the specific goals of the 12/15/10 fundraiser will be to prepare for a larger fundraiser to be held in the spring at the Creative Arts Charter School. That fundraiser will be a large installfest festival, and will have booths for Bay Area open source-related groups, such as local Linux user groups and local businesses, both large and small. We will have barbeques and games for kids. It will be a fun, family-oriented event that will have the dual purpose of raising money and soliciting hardware donations, which will be triaged on the spot and we will install Linux on machines that are brought in, so that we can turn those machine right around and install them in the 6 Bay Area Schools where we have a presence.

Partimus will be accepting donations during this event, both monetary and of computer hardware, please see the Donate page for more details about the hardware Partimus is in need of."
Thanks everyone!
