My goal for the year was $10,000, but in about three weeks we raised over $21,000!
That's so amazing, and I couldn't have done it without the generosity of all the developers. They were super generous with their software, and incredibly patient with my constant pestering for the licenses (registrations) for the buyers.
(In fact, there's something of a discrepancy here. Our total donations at the PMC are almost $22,000, but the bundles we sold add up to $21,152.65. A number of people donated significantly more than the agreed-to price for their bundles, but $800 worth!? I haven't figured that out yet.)
Here are some interesting stats on the sales:
The PMC as a whole, this year, raised about $30 Million (still waiting on the final numbers) for the Jimmy Fund. Yay! It's hard to imagine that much money, isn't it? (Keep in mind there are about 5,000 of us raising the money for the PMC.)
The PMC Bundles project may just be a drop in the bucket, but it's an important drop and it's the best I can do. It has also improved by leaps and bounds every year.
