That is how much we need to get our interpreters out to DEFCON this year. Yes the number is smaller than we thought (thankfully) and we have decided to prioritize our funding.
Like last year, we will be focusing on flight and hotel fees. The first priority is the flight costs. We need to raise a bare minimum of $1,400. The flight fees are easily the most expensive part of the trip since our interpreters are coming from various parts of the U.S.
If by chance we do raise more than $2,300, any extra funds we have will go towards buying our interpreters new shirts for this year, the badges for our meetup, and covering costs of the fundraiser prizes; in that order. We look to launch our fundraiser this coming Wednesday, May 1st.
So spread the word!
