Happy holidays everyone!
As we go into winter break, we’re going to take this time to thank everyone who has contributed to BinaryHeart so far. First, thank you so much to our donors, to everyone who has donated either through computers or through money. The computers that flow through us are the blood of our organization. Though we will not be receiving computer donations during the break, please keep us in your hearts and minds during the holiday season!
We must also, of course, thank the institutions that form the infrastructure of our organization. Thank you to New Trier for supporting us in countless ways, most importantly providing a place to meet and store our computers. Thank you to Mr. Chris Klimkiewicz and Ms. Jacqueline Pritchard as well, our adult sponsors, for being our link with the school. Thank you also to Northwestern Settlement, for helping us to distribute our computers to those who need them.
Finally: Thank you so much to our members! If our computers are BinaryHeart’s lifeblood, and the school and Northwestern Settlement our bones, then you are our flesh and muscle. As you all know, BinaryHeart actually became a school club last year, and we’ve had tremendous growth since then. All of BinaryHeart’s progress this year can really be attributed to you. Take pride in what you have created! We would especially like to thank our Partners—Bennet Chou, Jack Eggemeyer, Simon Hooper, Richard Jo, and Edward Lee—for serving as role models and leaders in our BinaryHeart community. Another special thanks to the high school seniors of our group; to see their unyielding dedication to BinaryHeart even in this stressful time is inspiring.
Thank you all, and happy holidays!
The BinaryHeart Team
