Drupal Association members fund grants that make connections all over the world.
I would like to suggest a new feature: add an optional call-to-action button. For some website visitors, it may not be clear that they can click on the image/title in order to read more about the displayed content.
Such call to action button could be: 'Read More or 'Purchase', ... depending on the use of the slider.
It is a minor feature request, but I think more users would use this kind of feature.
