I’ll do it, but only if you’ll help

Why would you put a deadline on this? I vaguely remember hearing about this a while back but paid no attention to it as I had no money. I just came into some and would love to make this pledge but essentially I found out about it today, the day after the deadline.

I'm not suggesting that 96,000 more people would sign up if you kept it open another month but I don't see the reason for any deadline ever. When you get 100,000 pledges, you start collecting money. Until then, you collect pledges. Some things build momentum slowly but after they do keep it up for a long time. Why not ospen this back up? Oct. 31, 2006 is arbitrary and unnecesary. Those kids deserve the computers regardless of
how long it takes.
