The middle of the month is, traditionally, a time when we send financial support to open source projects and charity organizations. This time, the lucky member of our team responsible for the selection of a project and organization to support was Krzysiek.
Krzysiek chose to help out Vim, the programmer’s editor with more than 20 years of history and a cult following (with Krzysiek being one of the devoted fans). Actually, Bram Moolenaar, the author and maintainer of Vim, no longer uses the donated money for the project, and instead passes it on to the ICCF Holland organization, who helps children in Uganda – so we’re indirectly donating to that cause (and very happily so).
The second organization that we’re supporting this month is the Polish Association for People with Mental Handicap in Zgierz, Krzysiek’s home town. They have been in operation for more than 20 years (like Vim!), providing help and care for people with mental disabilities.
We send our thanks and best wishes to the developers of Vim, to ICCF Holland, and to the Association!
