This is it, folks. It's the last official day of the IxDA "Give a Little
Back" support drive! Right now we are at $9,600 and 478 contributors. We
need a BIG push from everyone today. Please contribute!
I encourage you to put challenges out there... create a matching challenge.

February 2010, our friends at Cooper (http://www.cooper.com) have been great
supporters of IxDA and are offering this:
