A Transition Ottawa groups would like to open a Community account with Alterna to help with a project creating alternative currency and local democracy. Alterna offers these accounts for free to non-profits. We'd need permission from two of the non-profit founders to do this. I e-mailed Corrie a while back and yesterday, but haven't heard back, so I thought to see if I could connect to the other founders. I can send more information by e-mail - write to new firstname.lastname@example.org - and I'll tell you about this exciting project that could help not only Ottawa but any town in the world who wants more autonomy. Having this community account in Transition Ottawa's name could help fund raising in general. Thank you for any help you can offer.
