The organizers of the 3rd Annual Libre Graphics Meeting (LGM) 2008 in Poland are making an urgent plea to raise $20,000 to pay for conference expenses and travel of open source developers so they may attend and have a productive face-to-face conference.
The funds are critical to keep the momentum of success from previous conferences and to pave the way for the future development of open source graphic applications. There are 16 short days left to raise the necessary monies to ensure the developers’ travel is paid so they may attend this important meeting.
Supporters of open source are encouraged to pledge money and show support by posting the badge below on their sites.
To make a pledge, please visit the pledge website and spread the link – http://pledgie.com/campaigns/613
The Libre Graphics Meeting 2008 pulls together the best developers of open source graphic applications such as the GIMP, Inkscape, Scribus, Blender, Krita, the Open Clipart Library and more.
All donations will be made to the conference organizers via the GNOME Foundation, a 501(c)3 tax exempt US-based non-profit, so donations will be tax deductible for US taxpayers. Please show your support today.
