Hi fellow Pythonistas!

As some may have seen, the PSF announced that PyCon US 2021
<https://pycon.blogspot.com/2020/12/announcing-pycon-us-2021.html> will be
a virtual experience.

PyCon US generates over 65% of the PSF’s revenue. With PyCon 2020 and 2021
happening virtually, the PSF may lose over one million USD of expected
revenue for those two years.

Your support is more important now than ever! If you are able to, please
consider donating!

DONATE TODAY! <https://www.python.org/psf/donations/2020-q42020-drive/>

If donating is not an option, help spread the word about the fundraiser!
Below are some resources our staff put together for community members to

   Here is a link
   to some custom infographics and I’ve attached two slides with information
   you can use in any upcoming virtual presentations.

      Your contributions helped @ThePSF award $324,000 in support to
      initiatives around the world to 60 different countries in 2019! Please
      consider donating to help us continue our work -

      The PSF allocated $30,000 to support CPython through a complete
      migration to GitHub in 2020 & in 2019 allocated $19,000 to assist CPython
      with Python 2 sunset communications. Help support future CPython
      improvements by donating to @ThePSF fundraiser!

      Overall, @ThePSF has disbursed $1,752,000 in financial support
      through its Grants Program to trainings, conferences, sprints &
      all over the world between 2014 and 2019. Invest in our community by
      donating to the fundraiser today.

Thank you so much for your help!
