Partimus co-founder Maile Urbancic has outdone herself again. As we blogged about here, Boutique Academia, a small company run by Partimus co-founder Maile Urbancic, has created some beautiful gold-colored and silver-colored earrings created in the shape of the Ubuntu human family logo. Now, she has added gold-colored and silver-colored rhodium necklaces with the Ubuntu theme.
Maile has graciously decided to donate $10.00 from the sale of each pair of earrings to Partimus. She will send Partimus checks reflecting those earnings every time she receives enough sales to send us at least $100.00 in earnings from the earrings and from the necklaces.
We are so proud of these earrings necklaces, because they are beautiful, and they promote the Ubuntu theme of one human family. Partimus’ work in schools is about delivering high-quality pre-owned computers to students, but the bigger picture is teaching students and teachers about the power of sharing. The Ubuntu human family logo fits right in with this theme, so Partimus is certainly thrilled to be able to be associated with this wonderful theme, and these beautiful earrings and necklaces.
This necklace is exciting, because it continues a Partimus tradition of beautiful, smart innovation by a team of women who have founded Partimus and continue to make Partimus move today. Partimus was founded by two women, Cathy Malmrose and Maile Urbancic, and today, half of our board members are women. Women have been instrumental in developing the Partimus vision, setting policy in Partimus, and executing on the Partimus vision. The new necklaces, which are based on the theme of the Ubuntu GNU-Linux operating system, extend the Partimus theme of blending technology with beautiful aesthetics. Here is a close ups of the silver-coloried rhodium necklace (rhodium is a non-tarnishing silver):
We are also thrilled to be able to show our major donors that we are making headway in our goal of growing Partimus as an organization. Major donors are always happy to see that the organization they support has multiple sources of revenue, so that the organization is sustainable in the long run. Thanks to Maile for starting this fundraising campaing, and thanks to all of the Partimus volunteers who are publicizing the campaign and are making it a success! And of course, thanks tons for all of you wonderful donors who purchase a set of earrings or a neckace!
