I've watched with dismay over the years as we have gone from summer of code
to month of code to week of code to day of code to hour of code. That said,
I know nothing about marketing and obviously this is a good outreach

(1) Sugar on RPi install party
(2) Sugar on a Stick install party
(3) Write your first interactive paint program in Turtle Blocks
(4) Write your first song in Music Blocks
(5) Do X, Y, or Z with a Sugarizer activity.

> Happy holidays!
