[HOT] Happy New Year

Seasons greetings,


For those of you in the United States, there are less than 48 hours left in
2013; that means you still have time to make a tax deductible, charitable
gift to the Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team.


The 2012 financial disclosure¹ shows us that HOT substantially grew its
revenues from 2011, however a bit unequally its expenses also grew; overall
only slightly improving its financial stability.  I expect that trajectory
continued this year, potentially halting or reducing growth.  Therefore, I
ask you to join me in contributing even a small amount to HOT before the end
of the year to show your support for all of our great work in 2013.
Donations can be made directly on the HOT website².


As a 501(c)(3), HOT is a qualified organization to receive your charitable
contributions which in turn can be used for itemized deductions on your 2013
US tax filing, as explained on the IRS website³. 


Cheers and Happy Holidays!
