The SIFP event at the Fisher Pavilion in the Seattle Center, on October 3rd went great!  We were the second presentation to go, and had great results in the feedback poll.  We recieved a grant of $1,000 from Ashoka Seattle, as well as tons of useful contacts for future use.  I hope that we'll soon be able to get this program developed and running, and help the world!
