Thank you to our community angels

We've completed our Community Angel round of Kickstarter funding, and I want to take a moment to thank everybody who donated, spread the word, evangelized and joined the discussion. It is amazing to see a worldwide community coalesce around supporting Freedom and developing this technology.

Getting these funds has enabled us to start moving ahead on a number of fronts at once. Our technical advisory and community organization groups are well on their way, and our translation team is now 50 strong and busy with the videos on our new media page. Generally, there is a lot going on at the foundation and plenty of ways for everyone in the community to join in.

We will be contacting all of our donors individually in the next few days to work out details for sending the kickstarter rewards. A quick reminder that some of the pledges will not ship until the first version of the software is ready in a few months while the larger items, like the tee shirts and bags, should ship out in April.

Anyone who missed out on the pledge drive, or wants to contribute funds to the foundation directly can now donate via paypal on our site.

Thanks again to everybody involved and interested in this project! Your support is what makes this work. If you want a more interactive discussion than this announcement, sign up to our development list. or join us in #freedombox on oftc.net.

Sincerely,

Ian and the rest of the team at FreedomBox Foundation
