Here at MakerBridge we’re big fans of the Ada Initiative and we’ve written about them several times before. This post is about the recent #libs4ada funding drive that took place over the last two weeks or so.
Around September 10th, Andromeda Yelton, Bess Sadler, Chris Bourg, and Mark Matienzo announced that they would match all donations from librarians to the Ada Initiative, up to $5120. When that goal was met in the first 24 hours they announced further stretch goals with humorous and adorable incentives. To date, the #libs4ada funding drive has raised over $20,000 for the Ada Initiative!
The Ada Initiative’s funding drive for 2014 goes through October 8th. If you’re a member of the library community, you should donate here. If you’re not a member of the library community but you still want to donate to this awesome organization, donate here.
