Will do, thanks this is a great place to start. Also will be contacting U of T,
my sister is a 3rd year ECE student there. Planning on contacting as many CS
and ECE listservs as I can find. Is this permitted? Are there any procedures,
regulations, or recommendations when it comes to cold contacting mailing list
registrars with a request to share our letter informing students (and faculty?)
of the opportunity to "work on complex and interesting libre hardware/software
and receive tax deductible charitable donations for their contributions?"

After university engineering and computer science mailing lists, maybe I should
try tech and hardware forums? Perhaps both the professional and enthusiast tech
forums, because people like Jacob and I watch things like Gamer's Nexus on
youtube, so there may be others that we can find there?

I agree. I'll write something up and post it on the wiki, will post the link
here when its up.
