We're thrilled with the level of participation and interaction between staff and volunpeers. Below are a few statistics.

This included activity across the world -- Canada, UK, Australia, France, New Zealand, and US. As a result of volunpeers' great work, we hosted a Contribute&Connect Google+ Hangout with Nick Pyenson on February 18: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uE3XQfIjIrU which was viewed 26 times, with 9 people watching live.
If you haven't yet taken part, or just need a little more #FWTrueLove, we are happy to announce the last two projects are now on Transcription Center. The links are below.
