Ned’s presentation on Buy India a Library was featured on the front page of Slideshare today (!). I am so damn proud of him, and I trust Jan and Justin are too :). Ned also posted about this presentation on his blog.
And who knows, maybe there will be more :).

Well, it took us a little longer than we’d hoped to sort out the logistics of getting money across various borders and currencies, and cobbling together one big gift out of our separate Paypal accounts, but now that is all done, and all of your donations in the hands of Good Gifts. And here is what you made:
A library for India! (pics to come when we get ’em)
(This isn’t your library — that isn’t built yet — but we hope it will make kids happy like this!)
Again, thank you more than words can say for your enthusiastic support of this project. We hope to be able to get pictures and reports about your libraries when they are up and running, and we’ll report about that here and on Twitter and the Facebook page.

In other news, a lot of you have asked for more specifics about how and where the money will be spent, and we’ve contacted the charities involved with questions, so I hope to be able to share that information with you shortly.
We remain amazed at your generosity and supportiveness: thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
