PreCentral: Donate to support WebOS Internals with the 2012 Web-a-thon - just three days left!

Donate to support WebOS Internals with the 2012 Web-a-thon - just three days lef

This time last year saw one of the greatest moments in homebrew history we've ever witnessed: the webOS community came together and raised a whopping $16,699.26 to support WebOS Internals. It was a huge sum, and it went a long way towards helping ensure the homebrew organization could continue to operate without its members needing to shell out for testing devices, server space and bandwidth, and other costs. Sure, it's open source, and while the code may be free, all the work that goes into making it happen and making it available comes at a cost.

There are a handful of groups that can lay a claim to helping sustain webOS to this point. HP's standing in that group is debatable (though they're trying to redeem themselves), but no one can argue that WebOS Internals has performed miracles time and time again for the webOS community. There's a reason the community banded together to raise that sixteen thousand dollars last year. While Internals does have cash to continue operations for a while (sixteen grand will do that), they're always looking to ensure their future viability. With complex projects like WebOS Ports' LunaCE and whatever's about to go down with Open webOS on the horizon, sustaining WebOS Internals into the future isn't something even the novice webOS user should think twice about. This organization needs and deserves our continued support.

Right now the 2012 web-a-thon has raised just over $4,000, and really that's just not enough. Sure, last year was one hell of a year, with the wound of HP's axe falling onto webOS still incredibly raw, but are we really going to let things stand at so paltry of a sum? One quarter of last year's total really isn't acceptable to us, and it shouldn't be acceptable to you either.

To make a donation, head over to the WebOS Internals site support page to deposit your funds, and then go ahead and post in the web-a-thon forum thread with your donation amount. Even if it’s just a dollar or two, every little bit helps!
