    absolutely great, thumb up. I know why I love you guys :) First you are the best crowd sourcing site and second because of Humanitarian assistance(is that the right word *hmmm* ). Things like this make me even more proud to be a 99Designer :)

    Nice show of generosity. In showing off your philanthropy, you also showed everyone that 99designs takes in over $14 million ($39,957 profit per day x 365 days) a year, while the top designers only take in several thousand dollars for hundreds if not thousands of hours of work. Nothing like white collar sweat shop labor is there?
