As for the money raised so far Tarah and I and in communication with Ahmed Mohamed. Right now I'm sure he has 1Ks of emails to go through. I'm giving it a week if I don't hear back from him I will refund the money to you guys.
You guys are amazing and thanks so much for stepping in and giving to Ahmed.
"We exist without skin color, without nationality, without religious bias..." -From the Hacker's Manifesto
Ahmed Mohamed wanted to impress his engineering teacher with his creation that took him 20 minutes to build at his Irving home.
The 14-year-old was arrested and suspended for three days after arriving to class with a homemade clock that police and school officials feared was a bomb.
This is compaigned is to launched to show Ahmed that the hackers' community is supporting young hackers to be the heros of tomorrow. The money will be sent to Ahmed Family's directly to cover him and his dad trip to Defcon next year. $4k for air, hotel, badges, food.
Show your support for our young hackers.
