Yahoo! Time Capsule

Yahoo! has started a time capsule to show future generations what our world and lives were like up until 2006. So, between now and November 8, Yahoo! would like everyone to contribute their pictures, sounds, videos, writings, and drawings to the time capsule. Anything contributed will be used as historical data, and will be placed in the Smithsonian Folkways Recordings in Washington, D.C. In addition, Yahoo! will ask you to choose from seven organizations so that they can donate $100,000. The following organizations are:

  • World Wildlife Fund (climate change)
  • International Rescue Committee (refugees)
  • Grameen Foundation (poverty -- microfinance)
  • Unicef (basic education & gender equality)
  • (health -- AIDS)
  • Seeds of Peace (peace)
  • International Child Art Foundation (visual arts)

So, please visit the website below and contribute to this time capsule!
