We’re one day late with this month’s donations, since we normally do them on the 15th of every month, but that’s no big deal – 16th is good too. The project and organization to support this month have been selected by Karol.
The open source project that our donation goes to is Marionette, an application library for Backbone.js. Some of the guys on our team (Karol and Arek, to be specific) have been recently involved in a project that uses Marionette, and they liked working with it, so per their recommendation, we’re now giving back to the creators of the library. Thanks guys, and congratulations on a great project!
We are also supporting the Foundation of the Dog Angel Asylum, which runs an animal shelter in Warsaw. With our donation, we’re helping fund the rehabilitation of one of their dogs, named Słonik (which is Polish for “little elephant”, sadly we don’t know the backstory behind this name). Słonik had major health problems, has undergone two operations, and still has a long and expensive recovery ahead of him. Get well soon, Słonik!
