Dear hackers,

as you already might have heard about, our friends form c-base in  
Berlin, http://hackerspaces.org/wiki/C-Base, currently have a huuuge  
power bill looming - and of course, we were thinking of ways to help  
them out!

Therefore, Nick from HacDC came up with yet another awesome idea:
On Dec. 29th, during the 25c3 congress in Berlin, we'll be hosting a  
'Power to the people' event at c-base, where geeky, hack(erspace)- 
related stuff shall be auctioned for the good and win.

So I'm asking all you people for maybe one or two donations you could  
give away to make this auction happen, and to keep the power running  
at one of the greatest hackerspaces in Europe!
This could either be a box of useful hardware parts that are yet  
looking forward to be re-assembled to something completely new and  
terriffic, or maybe a project you built that's now collecting dust on  
one of your shelves, or maybe even some T-shirts or your hackerspace;  
in short: about anything you can give away in good conscience for a  
good cause.

Also, I'm very proud to announce that we'll have Marc Powell donate  
his great knowledge about hacking food in terms of giving a  
foodhacking.org workshop and a subsequent presentation at c-base on  
that evening, where people will be invited to have a very special  
dinner before partying hard. The (due to the dimensions of the kitchen  
at c-base) limited number of 6 tickets for participating in his  
workshop on Dec. 29th in the afternoon shall be sold to inure to the  
benefit of their power bill, too.

Again, be kind and contribute to our collection for the 'power to the  
people' auction at c-base this December.
Please get in touch with me via astera at hackerspaces.org as soon as  
possible, and I'd be more than happy to answer any questions or help  
get your stuff over to Berlin!

Cheers & hack on,
