I've withdrawn from the election for the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees. I'm happy with several of the other candidates; here's more about my reasons, and the names of two (so far) candidates I endorse: http://wikistrategies.net/board-election-update/ (Also, I've preserved my candidate statement and answers to questions from voters, here: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:Peteforsyth/2015_board_election_Peteforsyth_answers )

This girl's family badly needs to give her a proper sendoff. They have not had much good news in the last couple weeks. A few dollars, a reshare, or just your sympathy and positive thoughts or prayers would make a big difference to them and to me -- thank you for any help you can give.

Even though Bessie was born with breathing problems and medical issues Little Bessie was an active and inquisitive baby. Fisty and fun she loved tacos! As a result of her medical problems Little Bessie had an early sunset on her life March 11, 2015. We are asking for your help to cover cos...

A birthday surprise from the staff at Lois the Pie Queen, one of my favorite local restaurants. Accompanied by song...they had to pause to ask me for my name, it had been a while :) This was only part of the gift -- the main one was, they let me put in my order after they'd announced closing time! And what a delicious meal it was....
