We’re getting close to the end of the
worldmonth, which is when I usually do my monthly donations — so let’s get to it.
The open source project that I’m supporting this time is Vim, the text editor of choice for many programmers. I thought it’s a perfect moment to make it this month’s project because of two reasons:
- I recently switched (back) to using Vim as my primary editor/IDE
- Vim just celebrated its 21st birthday (three days ago — Happy Birthday!)
The donation that I’m sending is not actually going to Vim, but to ICCF Holland, which is an organization devoted to helping children in Uganda. All financial support for Vim is transferred to them — which is awesome. Thanks and best wishes to Bram Moolenar, the author of Vim, all the contributors to the project, and to the volunteers of ICCF Holland!
I’m also supporting the Animal Shelter in Bydgoszcz, which has a long tradition of caring for unfortunate cats and dogs, and finding them new homes. Thanks to all the employees and volunteers of the shelter for their work!
