Personal Sponsorships of Maker Faire Africa

We’ve been asked by a number of people if they could sponsor Maker Faire Africa as individuals. Amounts that range from $25 to $100. This is a good idea, and in line with the type of event that this is. Committee member Mark Grimes, founder of Ned.com, is in charge of all the funds, and he will be using a PayPal account to receive those personal sponsorships until we have a better way to handle it.

[UPDATE: Mark has created a widget that allows anyone to sponsor MFA on the main page.]

Thanks!
