Nearly 150 developers are participating, and have pledged to donate the proceeds from today’s software sales to a variety of charities benefiting earthquake-stricken Haiti.
One of the unfortunate bits of confusion to arise out of the program is the question of which time zone the “January 20” sales should apply to. To help alleviate confusion on my store, I’ve modified the main store page and the checkout page, to each contain a prominent header near the top of the page. You’ll know your payment to Red Sweater is actually going to Haiti, by the presence of this banner on the page.
If you’re the kind of person who likes to buy Mac software, and wouldn’t mind if that money went to help folks who are struggling through a tough tragedy, please consider buying software from myself and the other participants today.
