Is the donor anonymous? If not - who was it, what was their stated reason, and how much was their donation? Should we have a "donation meter" on top of the WM-au site - whilst the Foundation's goes up to 6million ours can go all the way to $25. We're bound to hit our target that way!
On a more serious note: What is the rules about donations received in australia being given to the Foundation. I know that the law in Germany says this is not allowed and therefore the German chapter uses their money to provide things like the tool server. In other countries they are allowed to pass the money forward and this is what they do - the money going into the Foundation's larger collection. This will not affect us this year but it may do in the future. What is the law/our rules? -Liam On 11/25/08, Brianna Laugher <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote: > > Hey all, > > I thought I would let you know something cool.
