Canonical and Creative Commons Meet Donations Target

Melissa from the Creative Commons pointed me to the rather good news that Canonical’s offer to match Creative Commons donations up to $3000 has already been matched:

Just five days ago we announced that Canonical would be generously matching every donation dollar for dollar for the next week – up to $3,000. Well, we met that goal in record time! Thanks to everyone who donated in the past five days and had your donation doubled – for a total of $6,000 going toward our annual campaign to sustain CC!

Many thanks to Canonical for their ongoing support of free culture and Creative Commons.

We still have a long way to go to reach our $500,000 goal for this year’s campaign, so please donate today and show your support for a culture of sharing!

Thanks to everyone who donated, and if you haven’t donated yet, go and contribute!

    [...] Com isso o Creative Commons fica com um pouco mais de fundos à sua disposição, e todo mundo que doou pode ficar com a sensação de que contribuiu em dobro. Eu doei faz pouco tempo, e em breve vou doar de novo, porque acredito na importância do trabalho desenvolvido pela entidade.(via jonobacon.org) [...]

    Any chance of having a similar match for other Open Source related fundraisers? There’s quite a few upstream projects that may need help getting cash together.
