Dear PHP Community member,
Over a year ago I first heard about the Ada Initiative, an organisation to support women in open technology and culture. This is exactly why PHPWomen was founded, only we narrow it down to women within the PHP community, because that is our level of expertise. However, we are an organisation based on volunteers and therefore, we often struggle with finding the time to do more. Luckily, The Ada Initiative isn’t based on volunteers, but on people working full time to reach their goal, our goal. We share their vision: “a world in which women are equal and welcome participants in open source software, open data, and open culture” and therefore we support the organisation.
However, like all organisations, they can’t run without financial support. They started another fundraiser a couple of weeks ago which ends this wednesday (31st October) and they still need quite some money to reach their goal. We know you care about women in the PHP community, and technology as a whole, as much as we do. Donating to the Ada Initiative is an easy way to help and our community is based around helping others.
