I just donated $500 to OpenHatch. Here's why you should donate too:
- Diversity in open source matters. We can't keep making the software the world runs on without involving people of all sorts, from all backgrounds.
- OpenHatch is run by community members who I've known for years and trust. They care about data-driven effectiveness and are always getting better at what they do.
- A rising tide floats all boats. More contributors == more awesome.
- If you donate before December 24th, your donation makes twice the difference.
Diversity and education initiatives are the reason I'm a part of the free and open source software community today. (Thanks, Debian Women.)
You don't have to donate $500 to make a difference. $5, $10, $25— from a hundred people—all adds up.
