ADC Write and Give Program donates $6200 in the Q3 of 2008

The Adobe Developer Connection (ADC) Write and Give Program gave $6200 USD to charities in the third quarter of 2008. The program acknowledges the writing efforts of our ADC community authors by giving US$100 to a charity for each author’s published article on the ADC. Each author chooses his or her charity from a list of five preselected charities (listed below). In 2008, our goal is to give between $24,000-$32,000 to these charities in recognition of our ADC authors. To our ADC authors, we thank you for sharing your technical expertise with the greater developer community and helping other communities as well!
