dear all,
   Samson is now sponsored for the up-front expenses of his trip to GSoC in
the amount of $700. His actual expenses are closer to $900 if anyone wants
to co-sponsor. I understand that SFC is going to reimburse me around $630
because that is the amount they allocated for local travel expenses.

kind regards,
Hilary Naylor

Because Samson Goddy is our close friend and clearly should go to San
Francisco for GSoC, it is tempting to send him a personal loan.

But for Sugar Labs to provide loans to our personal friends is a dangerous
precedent frought with moral and ethical hazards.

As such, personally my conscience forces me to abstain from all such

I strongly encourage others to provide Samson the $627.05 personal loan he
in fact does need, if Sugar Labs cannot.

*It will make a gigantic difference, and you will have a friend for life in
Samson Goddy, who is likely to move forward accomplishing truly incredible
things in his life.*
