Children In Need, which happens every year in the UK since Terry Wogan
could first raise an eyebrow in interest,will again be occuring.
I would very much like to see the UKTeam rally forth , as they had
before at Linux World, and come up with a One Day event that every
Ubuntu UK team member and mailing list reader can take part in. Of
course it would be even better if we could round up the other Community
Distro members and motivate them to do something similar.
The Appeal night is the 17th Of November and I would like to get an
Entry into the Charity and agree to raise funds.
We currently have the Signed T-Shirt for which will be somehow
Auctioned. ( Should I do this on EBAY ? ). It contains the signatures
of Canonical Staff from the Stand on the Day, the Ubuntu UK team
members, John Maddog Hall ( Because he saw it could be signed ! ) and Im
hoping Mr Shuttleworth will be able to sign it for us as well.
Being an Ubuntu fellow I am sure we all understand how each of our
actions will effect another individual. Lets have a Charity Ubuntu
Install , Hand out, Ask A Geek a Question, Bug Fix, Bonus Pay out thing
fest day and then lets share it with the community and the media and
show how Open Source , Open Opportunities.
