This month the “People of WordPress” spot honors Kim Parsell, who was also known as #wpmom before she passed in 2015. If you are relatively new to the WordPress scene, take a moment to read about Kim and get to know her a bit. 🕯️
Topher DeRosia is celebrating five years of HeroPress, which continues to tell the stories of people in the WordPress community who have felt they’re on the outside.
WP&Up announced #DoSummitGood, an online summit for this #GivingTuesday. The summit will bring together “the ‘for good’ entities within the WordPress space.” Check out the speakers, which include Topher, Cory Miller for WP&UP, Marieke van de Rakt for Yoast’s Diversity and Care Funds, and others.
Yoast announced its Yoast Care (Community Appreciation REwards) fund a while back — it’s a program that rewards people for their voluntary contributions to WordPress. Yoast recently spoke with Georgia Castro, their first recipient, about her contributions. 💝
