One of the biggest stories of late is how many people have died and how much destruction due to the Australian brushfires. CNN is reporting that at least 181 people dead and nearly 1000 homes destroyed in bushfires. I’ve never been to Australia but hope to visit one day. My prayers go out to all of the people affected by this tragedy.
The Sitepoint team which is based in Melbourne has put together an offer for their eBooks. They have posted a very good recap of the brushfire issue which is worth reading. To help affected families in the area, Sitepoint has created a way for you to help by purchasing a set of five eBooks of your choosing for $29.95 (normally $150). All of the proceeds from the sale will go to helping victims of the Australian brushfires.
The books include html, css, design, backend development along with business and management offerings. Share the story (using the Sitepoint link not this HTMLC link) to your colleagues and friends and let’s try to help them reach their goal of $50,000 by February 13th.
I thought I’d provide a quick update. So far we’ve raised over USD $125K/ AUD $195K with plenty of time left to grab a bargain. For everyone that already has – from the bottom of my heart – thank you.
