As I mentioned nearly a month ago I have decided to donate a portion of the earnings from this site to a Free Software or related project each month. The first month I pledged to donate 25% of the monies earned, and that I have done. The first donation has gone to help the EFF help protect our digital rights, and I actually did just a bit over 25%… just to make it a nice round number.
While this was a difficult decision–there are so many projects to donate to–I felt it was a good choice. I will continue to donate into the future so if you have a project that you feel would benefit please leave a comment.
Also, in an effort to be transparent, and also considering this money was generated by many of you by visiting the site, here are the details:
$100 went to the EFF as a one-time donation.
I will receive the awesome EFF "swat" hat as a gift. (I'll see about posting a picture when it arrives).
I want to thank everyone for continuing to support this site. I hope you’ll continue to do so and I hope you agree with the donation decisions. I know the money comes from many of you taking time to visit the site and I appreciate it.
Why make donations some month go to Net Neutrality / SavetheInternet.com?
