Support Namoroka is up and ready to accept donations. If you’re late to the party, we’re celebrating the release of Firefox 3.6, by raising funds to make a gift to the namesake park, Namoroka, that serves as this version’s pre-release code name.
Why are we doing this? Parks are a part of an important ecosystem for collaboration, recreation and commerce, much like the digital ecosystems we build through the Mozilla project. While we work to make the web better through products like Firefox, we can make the world a bit better by supporting parks like Namoroka.
How can you help?
- Donate! We’re hoping to raise $10,000 to give to the Madagascar Fauna Group to help them improve their website and online fundraising, as well as support programs for protecting lemur habitats and stopping illegal lemur trapping.
- Spread the word! Get your own Support Namoroka button and put it on your blog or website, tweet it and sing it from the rooftops and street corners while you’re at it.
We’ll be raising funds until the end of January 2010. I’ll keep you posted on how the campaign is progressing over the next six weeks. Many thanks to Ned Schwartz, Brain Warren, Jamey Boje & David Boswell for their help in getting this project put together.
