We’re halfway through February, and since it’s also Valentine’s Day, it’s the perfect time to show that we have a good heart by choosing an open source project and a charity to support, just like we do each month. This month, it was the first time for Sebastian, the person responsible for project implementation in our team, to choose the beneficiaries.

As a great film enthusiast, though not necessarily always an enthusiast of great films, Sebastian decided to support VideoLAN, the organisation which develops one of the best media players - VLC. VLC has been around for over 17 years, and it is available for all popular operating systems and mobile devices. It also comes in over 40 language versions. We are very grateful for this wonderful program and wish the creators all the best in its further development!

We’re also making a donation to the Animal Shelter in Korabiewice, run by Viva! Foundation. The shelter cares not only for many cats and dogs but also for horses, cows, goats, and other livestock animals. The shelter has had a fairly rough history - up until 2012, it was in the hands of people who kept the animals in terrible conditions - people who didn’t look after them, but made them suffer instead. Fortunately, there were others who weren’t so insensitive to the animals’ fate. They took over the shelter and have been providing the animals with the best conditions possible for six years now. Thank you and best regards!
