IxDA Board of D...
2009

Since Sunday, together as a community we have raised $15,813, by 717
contributions! This includes the $600 match by the IxDA Board, as you
well-exceeded the call.

We can't thank you enough, and are thankful that so many of you stepped up
to chip in.

What's next:

We'll be holding the drawing for the last IxD'10 registration later this
evening, as well as the 40 books from Morgan Kaufmann, and the licenses from
ArtinSoft and the Usability Kit from Apogee Usability Asia.

Be on the look out for an official thank you, and a request for us to
publicly acknowledge your support.

We'll soon be creating a space where we can keep you updated specifically
about our infrastructure project, where the money is going, who we choose to
work with and opportunities for you to participate.

While we are now officially closing our support drive, you can still
contribute, but now we will spare your inboxes.

If you have any ideas or feedback, or want to get more involved, let us
know!

Thank you again!

President, IxDA

Dear IxDA community,

I want to add my voice here with a major THANK YOU! I literally got
chills just now reading how much support you contributed to our
infrastructure effort. You have enabled us to move forward with
confidence knowing that the organization will be sustained in the near-
term even as we can invest greatly in our capabilities and growth for
the long-term. You're the bestest! :)

I look forward to sharing news of the Conan project's progress and
further involving the whole community in our efforts.

Cheers,
Liz
IxDA Vice-President

"We can't thank you enough, and are thankful that so many of you stepped up
to chip in."

But we'll try. THANK YOU.

And not just for the contributions - which were awesome: for the blog posts,
the tweets, the retweets, the suggestions, reminders and moral support.
Those efforts were just as important to the success of these past few days.

We'd also like to thank and acknowledge the IA Institute and the organizing
committee for IDEA2009 for their ongoing friendship and support of IxDA.
Their gift of a ticket to IDEA2009 was a valuable contribution, as were
their efforts - both official and personal - to help with this fundraising
effort.

We would also like to thank the UPA for their kind contribution to the fund,
echoing Livia's sentiments about the community coming together for common
cause.

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you all.

Steve
Director, IxDA.
