Indie+Relief: charity for Haiti

As you no doubt know, Haiti recently suffered a disastrous earthquake, with at least 200,000 dead as of the latest official report.

Many people have been reaching out to offer support and donations to reputable charity organizations.

The Mac and iPhone independent developer community have come together to do their part. Almost 150 independent developers have declared that they will donate the proceeds of software sales on January 20 (tomorrow) to worthy charities of their choice.

I am participating in this. All proceeds from Dejal Mac app sales on this day will be donated to Mercy Corps for Haiti relief efforts.

Also, one of my products, Narrator, is now in the new Mac Bundle Box promotion. I will donate my share of sales from tomorrow's bundles to Mercy Corps, too.

If you've been thinking about buying a Dejal Mac app, please buy on the 20th so your purchase helps those in need.

For more information about the Indie+Relief effort, see the website. Take a look at the hundreds of other great apps available from generous independent developers. As the banner says, you get great software, Haiti gets financial help.

What the people are doing is a heroic thing. We are united just to help the people of Haiti. I think we should always do something like this. It’s going to take a lot to patch it back up – let's hope the various foundations can get enough aid funding. Thank heavens the Cayman Islands earthquake wasn't as bad as the Haiti earthquake – it looks like an aftershock, but less than a 6.0 on the Richter scale. It occurred out to sea instead of underground – I think it was the Oriente Fracture Zone, on the Cayman Trough or something along those lines, and it doesn't look like it's done any damage.
