This makes my donation to the EFF this year even more meaningful!!!!
One suggestion for people is getting your EFF donation through
gifts... I was in a friend of mines wedding party this year and he
asked what I would like for a gift. I told them make a donation to the
EFF in my name.
I got a free T-Shirt and sticker (although the bulldog one is still my
favorite) and one less thing to keep around the house... Also, got to
explain to a lot of people what the EFF does and where they can help.
Another tactic is someone offered to donate money to me for a small add
on to coppermine I did, I told them to donate to the EFF... I am not
sure if they ever did - but hey it helps.
Good job EFF!
