With the great success of Steak of the Word, and with 50% of sponsorships going directly to Big Orange Heart (yup we hit a secret stretch goal so we went from 25% to 50%) there is much that can be done through the end of the year. Including today there are 10 days to give back to the communities and missions that have helped get us through this year or the communities and missions that need it the most for next year. I’ve tried to find the opportunities for not just giving but also getting something in return.

Do The Woo, Join Friends of Do the Woo and Support Big Orange Heart: “There are certainly many good causes to support. But when it comes to community in the WooCommerce space, one of the first that comes mind for me is Big Orange Heart. And what better way to end the year than to do what I can to help this great organization. If you are not familiar with Big Orange Heart, here is their mission. To support and promote positive well-being and mental health within the remote working communities. They have been a critical and much-needed piece of the larger WordPress community and I applaud their efforts.”

Blacknight Solutions, Blacknight Comes Out For .GAY and Pledges to Support Irish LGBTQ Charity BeLonG To Youth Services: ““Support for the LGBTQ community is baked into the very core of the .GAY top-level domain name,” said Michele Neylon, CEO of Blacknight. “The .GAY registry, Top Level Design, is pledging to donate 20% of their .GAY revenue to LGBTQ charities. We’re topping that up with €1 from each new registration with Blacknight to BeLonG To Youth Services. It seemed only fitting to do our part to help the LGBTQ community in Ireland, which has come a long way in recent years. We’re really excited to be a launch registrar for .GAY. This is the chance for a truly safe space on the internet for LGBTQ people all over the world.””

Namescon, no site link, just from the email:

In Guatemala, 75% of the children are still under- and malnourished. We’re building gardens at a community school for the children learn about the different kinds of vegetables and medicinal plants that they can grow locally. Coming from impoverished families, nearly all the students’ parents practice subsistence farming at home. Besides the garden structures, EFK is providing training and supervision on the use of the elements and sustainable cultivation by our local permaculture expert—from raising the seeds, observing the growth, harvesting, and processing to composting and fertilization. The students then bring their knowledge home to their families and become multipliers.If you donate $100 to Entrepreneurs for Knowledge from December 22nd through December 26th, we’ll send you a free pass to NamesCon Online 2021: that’s a $79 value, but the value to the community you’re supporting is considerably more than that. We’ll be donating the proceeds on our end to EFK as well.

All you have to do is this:

  1. Donate at least $100 to EFK
  2. Send a copy of the donation receipt to [email protected]
  3. We send you a free pass to NamesCon Online 2021

Finally, something easy for the holidays! When you donate this holiday season, you’re not just sending a few bucks to some vague bureaucracy: your money goes towards specific projects at specific schools.
