Hey Ryan. It would be great if you could re-broadcast this invitation
as a message to all the members of the One Laptop Per Child
Philippines Facebook group, and not just post it in the news or
comments section. I think there's a way to do that on Facebook.
There are so much more people in the Philippines who are interested in
OLPC for Ph, they just don't know that it exists.
