Re: [Computerbank] statement of purpose

hi Bruce

In fact it is too long winded and contains statements which are covered by
the constitution.

a to d are ok as they cover our core business but they could be combined
into one shorter statement.

egTo give donated computer equipment to community groups and low income
earners, thereby providing them with the tools and training to become
computer literate. Somthing along these lines any ideas anyone?

Maybe something about the use of Gnu/linux and the promotion of the Free
Software foundation as an econimically viable alternative to current
commercial software for the economically disadvantaged                  

I wouldn't include anything to do with h or i as theya re covered in the

Just my opinion
