We’re more than thrilled at this donation and will be putting it to good use!

How the money will be used

This donation puts us closer to the 2019 goal of 10.000 euros (which is enough to cover multiple WordCamp sponsorships).

We’ll also be able to get more marketing going, including flyers that can be handed out at WordCamps and t-shirts that our volunteers can wear when representing us.

Missed the fundraiser?

Not to worry! You can always make a donation or get involved as a volunteer!
