Financial Status for 2004
to Haiku-os.org admin,
any chance of ads similar to HN.org ( 1 per page at either top or bottom ) ?
what about linking the http://www.guidestar.org/networkforgood/controller/searchResults.gs?action_gsReport=1&npoId=100293460
website on the http://haiku-os.org/contribute.php?mode=donate page ?
in less than 6 months, $763.92 was credited to Haiku through donations.
for the record,
2004-07-12, Haiku announced 501(c)3 status.
2004-08-30, Haiku has been able to accept donations through the website.
this amount does not reflect some donations that were deposited after 2004.
who wants the donations to break $2,000 for the year 2005?
even if you save $1usd a month (or less than a nickel a day) for the entire year to contribute sometime in Dec. 2005, the cummulative effect will help the cause :idea:
10 people who do that = about $100 after paypal's cut.
BeDrivers.com was able to raise ~$100USD for an Echo Gina 3G card for driver development in slightly over a month. http://www.bedrivers.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=141
shows where we can easily trade|sell|buy hardware with each other.
For mozilla, a single person is willing to pay $200 USD for real print support ( as this is a single person, i'll let them or someone else link to it )
yT even contacted the BeZilla team to find out how much is needed for the possibility for real printing from moz|ffox.
Several people, including myself are donating hardware to a BeZilla developer this spring, which will help with SMP and overall development.
Other people in the community have donated hardware to driver developers.
http://forums.begroovy.com//index.php?topic=4907.msg34038#msg34038 is a place where we can easily organize trading|selling|buying hardware from each other.
I'm sure that i've failed to mention other personal donations and I take that as a sign of community commitment to the BeOS (and related) platform.
so, what do you say?
... better yet, what do you? 8)
