You will get my vote later today. Also since this a noble cause would it be injustice to use "not so moral" tactics?

Aah unfortunately I am not on Facebook but looks like a worthy cause. Hope you get funded!
I checked out Malawi on Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Malawi) and it looks like it is politically progressive, with a democratic government.
Anyway, I guess better not to drag this into R&P, so good luck once again.

SSK,

Great project idea, so it was easy to support by voting for your proposal. I'm no fan of FB either, but following your link it was easy to click to read your story then vote for your proposal. I'll keep voting and hope that you win!

I really dig your cause, SSK. I go to a christian university that has a very good relationship with the Rwandan government, and there's a group on campus made up of mostly Rwandan foreign exchange students specifically geared towards providing fresh drinking water for small villages. It's a serious problem that plagues that part of the world, and it's fantastic to hear that there are people in the tech community that advocate and fight for these kinds of things. I wish you the best of luck, and will be sharing this with my classmates to help you out.

It didn't work in Chrome for me, but IE 64-bit worked a charm.

Ugh. I logged onto Facebook, I voted, and I even posted, asking others to vote.

If you win, I want some of the Microsoft "swag", so that I feel less horrible. That's the FOURTH TIME this year that I've been obliged to login to Facebook. :( :(

Hope you win, SSK!

P.S. - You're totally in second place. F1 loser is GOIN DOWN IN FLAMES.

Persuaded my wife to vote for you yesterday and today. Have asked a buddy to do likewise. Won't touch FB myself.

We sponsored a child in Malawi for a while but the family moved away from the area the charity was working in.
