Proceeds from of a pile of great Mac and iOS apps sold today (December 20th) will be donated to a charity working to provide clean water to those who don’t have it.
The whole thing’s been organised by Mike Piatek-Jimenez of Gaucho Software, who wrote recently:
With the holiday season upon us, I wanted to take this opportunity to give again, but in a bigger way than ever before. So today I’m announcing a new campaign called Apps for Water. [It] gives app developers a chance to donate one day of their sales to a very worthy cause: providing clean water for developing nations. It seems like a simple thing, turn on a faucet and clean water pours out. Unfortunately, there are almost 1 billion people in the world who don’t have a safe, clean water source.
A bunch of other developers have jumped aboard, so there are 30 apps for OS X and 26 for iOS, at prices ranging from one dollar right up to $80. Something for everyone.
