If you’re getting this email, we think that you participated in the Tor Challenge last year (details) and that you have maintained your relay at least 80% of the time in the last year.
Basically, we think you’re awesome.
Tor is one of the strongest tools for protecting privacy online. It’s used by millions of people worldwide to route around Internet censorship and browse the Web with anonymity. Whistleblowers, journalists, activists, and everyday people rely on Tor.
And Tor relies on you.
Tor exists because volunteers worldwide are contributing computing power to the network. You’re part of a community of people helping defend privacy online. I don’t think it’s an exaggeration to call Tor node operators heroes. Without you, there would be no Tor.
As a small token of our appreciation, we’d love to send you a limited-edition sticker. If you’d like to receive the sticker, just give us your mailing address on this form: […]
Please fill this out by August 20. Note that it may take several weeks for your prize to arrive.
We also believe that the bandwidth of your relay qualifies you for our special prize — a custom T-shirt. If you’d like to receive the t-shirt, please also include your shirt size.
The Tor Challenge was a joint campaign of EFF, the Free Software Foundation, the Freedom of the Press Foundation, and the Tor Project. This is the second edition of the Tor Challenge, and over 1,600 nodes participated.
If you aren’t already on the EFF email list, please consider joining. We’d love to stay in touch.
