Fundraising kick off thanks from Bo and JRP founders Bo Stahlbrandt (bgs) and J. Ramón Palacios (jrp) are thanking the generous members already supporting the Nikonians 2014 fundraising campaign.

As of this week the fundraising thermometer is creeping towards the $4,000 mark, thanks to some hefty additions (including one for $1,000).  Our founders want to make sure everyone understands that all donations, regardless of the amount, are deeply appreciated. 

The campaign is designed to expand and improve the experience for all users visiting the community.  

Our Nikonians 2014 Fundraiser News Blog provides background on this campaign. In brief, your support will allow us to pursue our work and continue our mission to share, learn and inspire. The goal is to apply funds raised towards improved navigation and ease-of-use as demanded by today's Internet users. 

Additionally, your donations will help members take advantage of increased worldwide opportunities to meet up and interact, through local gatherings, tours and chapters.


  -- We wish to publicly thank the following members for their generosity thus far :
