ADC Write and Give Program donates $6000 in Q4 of 2008

The Adobe Developer Connection (ADC) Write and Give Program gave $6000 USD to charities in the fourth 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, the ADC donated $26,000 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!
