We’ve been partnering with our authors and Humble Bundle on special pay-what-you-want ebook deals since 2015—that’s 30 bundles to date, for those keeping score at home. As anyone who’s taken advantage of these promotions knows, the PWYW model means that you choose between various pricing tiers of titles, then decide how much of your purchase goes to charity.
This is all to say: THANK YOU. We’re fortunate to have such a generous customer base, because over the last eight years we’ve raised more than $2.75 million for two-dozen non-profits, as well as the Hacker Alliance—a 501(c)(3) created by publisher Bill Pollock to support hacker communities around the world.
From promoting digital rights and fighting censorship, to helping marginalized populations learn to code, to supporting education through the United Negro College Fund and Teach for America, we’ve done a lot of good together.
