ADC Write & Give program

The Adobe Developer Connection (ADC) Write and Give Program gave $3,500 USD to charities in the second quarter of 2011. 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).

To date the ADC has donated over $56,000 to these charities through the program 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!
