ADC Write and Give Program donates $3,500 in Q1 of 2010

The Adobe Developer Connection (ADC) Write and Give Program gave $3,500 USD to charities in the first quarter of 2010. 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).

However, just for last quarter, we offered an additional charity choice to support the relief effort in Haiti, which a lot of our authors selected as their charity choice.

To date the ADC has donated over $43,000 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 while helping other communities at the same time!
