Last month we ran a 50% off sale on Bordeaux and this month we would like to do something a little different and raise some money for a good cause. With your help we would like to help support three very important projects.
* The first project is the Wine Development Fund. Proceeds from the WDF go toward supporting the annual Wine Conference. This year the Wine Conference will be held in Paris, France.
* The second project is freebsdnews.net. freebsdnews is a site about the current happenings in the FreeBSD community.
* The third project is the FreeBSD Foundation. The FreeBSD Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to supporting the FreeBSD Project.
We will donate 50% of all sales over the next month to each of the three projects listed above. Below is how we plan to distribute the funds to each project :
For each Linux and OpenSolaris sale we will donate 50% of sales to the WDF to help fund this years Wine Conference.
For each Mac, FreeBSD and PC-BSD sale we will donate 50% of sales to freebsdnews and then in return Gerard from freebsdnews will donate 10% of the funds he receives to the FreeBSD Foundation.
The remaining 50% covers our expenses and also will be used to hire a new developer to improve our UI for Bordeaux 3.0 (see below).
