6 more days to show your support for Firefox!

In: Mozilla|Personal

24 Oct 2004

Update 2: Mission accomplished! Spread Firefox tells me I’ve got 1140 points which means 10 other people have donated via my donation link. Thanks for the show of support and, more importantly, for supporting and loving Firefox!

Update: 1 more person has donated via my donation link! Thank you, Ken Pratt! 3 more to go!

I wrote about it before but I’ll write it again now as the deadline nears (6 more days). Anyway, here goes…

Show your support to Firefox if you love it by contributing to the expense of full-page Firefox ad that will be in The New York Times (leftover donations will be safe-kept by the Mozilla foundation to fund the Firefox 1.0 launch campaign, a non-profit organization). Donations are tax-deductible in the US. $30 for a normal donation, $10 if you’re a student. If you’ve ever thought of donating to the Mozilla cause before, now is the best time as ever to do so.

And I’m throwing in 2 free WordPress weblog hosting accounts (sponsored by ReviseMedia) should you make a donation (just let me know if you’re going to do so).

Firefox in the New York Times

I’m thankful to the 5 6 of you who’ve already donated due to my exhortations. If you do donate, and you feel general goodwill towards me (heh), I ask that you donate via my donation link. If I manage to get 9 of you to do so, I’d get the faux title of “Community Champion” and get some extra perks (I really want the free Firefox t-shirt signed by the Firefox crew).

Hi, I would like to donate (using your referring link, even), but am not keen on having my name displayed? I couldn’t find any info on this on the spreadfirefox FAQ. Probably because having one’s name displayed is the whole point. But, still. Help?
