Since Atlassian introduced starter license, with all the proceeds going to Room to Read, we have followed their footsteps all the way. Not only do we think it's a great idea, we just like the idea of giving back and taking responsibility. We selected Room to Read for the reason they are just doing an awesome job helping children around the globe, getting children education and bringing hope into their lives.
At first, we had our license free and people donated if they were interested. Last fall, we started charging for the Starter License and doing the donations ourselves to ensure that we can support Room to Read efforts. In December, we donated $1200 and this year we have donated just under $2000 to date. Thanks to those who purchased our Starter License and good luck to Room to Read.
