We need to talk about this

I want to do something. For starters, I have some electronics equipment I plan to donate including a brand new fax machine/copier/scanner I had planned to sell on Craigslist.

If you’d like to join me, leave a comment that includes your twitter handle or another means of contacting you. Let’s see what we can do to help collectively.
