I was thinking about fund raising for the TDF, given we will be at a big
event coming up in the USA, well over a thousand Linux enthusiasts and I
dare say many, in only 12 days, it is no surprise. 

Many LibreOffice supports and well wishers will be in that crowed, I
would say. 

Here is an idea then:

We hold a raffle at the show.

For what - for a poster.

Here is scaled down image:
(coincidentally making a nice desktop background on many monitors_

The poster would be 36" x 24" and mounted. Suitable for framing.

It will be prominently displayed in the LbreOffice booth at the Southern
California Linux Expo

We sell raffle tickets of $1.00 each for the one and only copy of this

SO - Still looking for someone willing to pledge to match the monies
collected at the show.

I am quite certain your donation will be multiplied! I am absolutely

The second person - I am looking for someone that will pledge to match
the amount raised at the show. It's that simple.

This is a very important role here - having a match grant _will_
increase the number of donations, raffle entries. You will also be
donating the most cash from your pocket! (at least I sure hope so :-)

Perhaps you are willing to match up to only a certain amount, that is
fine IMO - let's talk about that.

So - who is out there? Yup I'm talking to my fellow citizens in the US,
we have a good vehicle to contribute here..going...going....

Thank you for your time, your consideration on this issue and your
