I don’t think that I have ever been this excited about a phone! Please, please help them raise the $32 million that they need to achieve in ONE MONTH! (Wed 21 Aug 11:59PM PT) You can donate as little as $20. There is already well over $1 million raised in like 14 hours, so I think we are going to make it!
