Struggling to find a gift for the Ignite Seattle fan (or soon to be fan)? Maybe you’d like to support the speakers you’ve seen this year? You’re in luck! Many of this year’s speakers have the perfect gift to put a little bit of Ignite cheer under the tree and remind you of the amazing talks we had in 2018.

Walking to the End of the World
We traveled afar with Beth Jusino’s talk to Northern Spain where she spent 79 days walking over 1000 miles on her pilgrimage on the Camino de Santiago. If you know someone who wants to get away from it all while breaking in those new hiking boots, Beth’s memoir of her journey Walking to the End of the World: A Thousand Miles on the Camino De Santiago. –$14
For many of us, the holidays means giving tech support to those who need it the most: our families. Zac Cohn’s talk showed us how not to be the least secure gazelle by using the same password over and over again. The (somewhat ironically named) password manager 1Password is what he (and I) recommend for creating and managing passwords. They have apps for Windows, MacOS, Android and iOS to keep your passwords secure and in sync. 1Password is $36 a year for individuals and $60 for families of 5 or fewer.
Donate to SISCA
Earlier this year, Maryam Hosseini showed us how one guy can make you less racist She’s an active member of SISCA , a group that works here in Seattle to “reverse hostility between the United States and Iranian governments by developing people-to-people relationships.” You can support SISCA by becoming a member for only $5 a year.
