Help for Haiti: Indie Relief

In the event that you haven't already seen the banner on my site or heard about Indie Relief through other channels, I wanted to put up a post to get the word out. Fellow Cocoa dev Justin Williams had the idea last week to put together a one-day event amongst Mac and iPhone developers to donate a day's sales to organizations doing work in response to the devastating earthquake earlier this month in Haiti.

I'm happy to report that Code Sorcery Workshop will be participating. One-hundred percent of the sales tomorrow for Pukka and Meerkat will be going to Portland-based Mercy Corps. Here's what Mercy Corps is doing in Haiti.

Over 150 developers have signed on to this event, so I hope that you'll check it out and consider buying some software to support these causes helping with this terrible tragedy.

Followup: Justin Williams reports that Indie Relief raised over $140,000 yesterday. Amazing. Read more here. A big thank you to everyone who chipped in!
