Indie+Relief nets $143,872 for Haiti

Monday, January 25th, 2010

In case you haven’t already seen the news at the Indie+Relief site or on Twitter, the Indie+Relief fundraiser pulled in more than $143,000 for earthquake relief in Haiti – that’s more than any of us ever anticipated! You can read the details at Justin Williams’ blog.

Thanks to everyone who bought software or participated last Wednesday – you’re all fantastic!  It’s really heartening to see the community come together when the need arises. A lot of people really stepped up to contribute.  THANKS!

Indie+Relief: Help Haiti AND Get Great Software

Wednesday, January 20th, 2010

The earthquake in Haiti has nearly destroyed what was already a fragile country. Please join us in assisting in the relief effort.

On Wednesday, January 20 St. Clair Software and 100+ other developers are donating all sales to help provide medical care and supplies for Haitian earthquake victims. Please visit the Indie+Relief web site and purchase any products you need, think you might need or have even considered buying. All revenue will be donated to charities that benefit Haitian earthquake relief.

Even if you don’t purchase anything, donate to the charity of your choice.  Skip that latte and send water to people that desperately need it.  Skip that dessert and provide food or medicine. Or keep your lifestyle exactly the same and just donate a few dollars – it all adds up.  If you’re unsure which charity to give to, visit Charity Navigator, which breaks down the benefits (and costs incurred) for most major charitable organizations.
