More WordPress People Doing Good Things

WordPress Gives a Hand

For the third year in a row, a bunch of WordPress community members will join together at the holiday time for the charity campaign β€œWordPress Gives A Hand” #wpgivesahand.

During the holiday season, instead of giving out discounts to customers, participating WordPress community members will donate a percentage of their revenue to supporting people in need. Each company chooses whichever charity they would like to donate to.

This great initiative raises awareness across the global WordPress community. Last year, participating companies included Cloudways, TranslatePress, Visual Composer, wpDataTables, Amelia, and others. This year WordPress Gives a Hand is asking for your help to show the world that WordPress is a place for everyone!

The WP Community Collective

The WP Community Collective aims to address some of these ongoing challenges by creating community-funded Fellowships to financially support individual contributions to the WordPress project and community.

β€œWe hope that the WP Community Collective can help bridge the gap between the passion people feel for WordPress, and the very real and practical limits of volunteer contribution,” said founding co-director SΓ© Reed.  

The WPCC’s first initiative is the WPCC Accessibility Fellowship. They are currently in discussion with an existing unsponsored core contributor to hold the inaugural role of Accessibility Fellow, and have launched the fundraising efforts to fund this Fellowship: https://opencollective.com/thewpcc/contribute/accessibility-fellowship-46812
