> more adding to OpenStreetMap by tracing over Yahoo! aerial imagery on a
> Caribbean island, and to make a donation of £10 to the OpenStreetMap
> Foundation. This also gives you the chance to go there to do some
> fieldwork. If we get enough people (60), the OSMF will(*) pick one
> pledger at random to go to the Caribbean (probably Grenada) for a week
> or two to get road names, finish the map and do some evangelism.
