Explain your planEdit

As mentioned before I contribute in the WMF movement in different ways and the laptop will be use to continue working easier on organising the activities that I'm already working on. For smaller workshops and meetups related to Wiki Loves Maps, the laptop will be used for the preparation of the workoshps, during the workshops (for the projection) or for the participants in case one or more of them do not have a laptop. The same applies for events such as Wiki Weekend where I am on the organizing team or for all the activities related to our user group where I actively participate. I'd like to stress out the fact that the laptop will not only be used by me, but also from other people at our local Wikimedia community (for example at our hackerspace in Tirana) in times when I will not be using the laptop for WMF related project. This, in my opinion, gives more value to the donation since more people will benefit from this.
