Hey, what an awesome plug for this event!  It is truly uplifting to do
something to help others!  And it also helps us get the word out about
FOSS.  Perhaps most important, we are forging a strong alliance with St.
Anthony, one of the most successful charities in San Francisco.

St. Anthony is now housing Linux boxes for us, so that we don't have to
schlep the boxes over there for each of these events.  And we are working on
a pilot project to have a permanent Linux pilot project at St. Anthony.

Speaking personally for myself only, I know that I have felt that FOSS is
somewhat ignored by the mainstream.  It is very refreshing to have a
successful mainstream charity take an interest in helping us do outreach to
those who can best be helped by Linux boxes.
