Yay! Esperanto made it to the final round of Change.org's contest. The
numbers go back to zero though, so starting the 5th of January we've
got to redouble efforts. I think that even if we don't win, this
really raised some awareness and discussion about Esperanto. A very
happy new year!
The garden idea is great--I'm definitely going to try to get that
going. Other volunteer ideas I had in mind were volunteering at soup
kitchens (an opportunity to learn words involving eating), the humane
society (and several other like animal organizations), the Red Cross,
perhaps tutoring at local schools... It would be really cool if we
could get little classes started for the young'ns, but I think that
that could only be realized further in the future. That's only a short
list too--there's a ton of stuff we could do.
**UEA sent out a message about a fund that it has to give free money
to libraries/Eo groups to buy Eo books, and how so few apply for the
money that they usually end up giving some to every one who applies.

books you want and get em in before the 15th of October.
