The team looks forward to hosting an event that is aimed at collecting the funds for another desktop. This event will most likely be in March where the need is shared with our friends, family, and various networks.
The year has been a big one and next quarter we have an even bigger team working at the office. It will be a relief to have an additional computer and no longer be sharing, or coordinating schedules around the one. There have been too many instances where an intern or volunteer has had to leave the office due to lack of technology to work on. There are other times when we share on the one laptop when the desktop is being used -- seeing the one laptop get passed around is an interesting sight to see.
One of the reasons we need a desktop is to utilize our new database management software. We are thrilled to start organizing our donors inside Razor's Edge for the first time ever. Not only will this new software help us streamline processes, but the computer will be useful as we scale up as an organization. Another desktop is vital to the growth that we are experiencing. We have raised some funds but look forward to completing this goal by Spring 2013. The team looks forward to spreading the word with their networks about our need of another computer.
