Help iFixit choose where some donations go!
Our Community (the staff team and YOU) have been tasked with helping us choose where we donate some of our charitable contributions each year. The first step is nominations. Feel free to list as many possible recipients as you feel are deserving and a few words about why they’re awesome. My plan is to compile a bunch of different recipients and ultimately you all will vote on which organization we choose. I have a few general rules that we’ll need to follow:
- They need to support our causes (think Right to Repair, Repair Shops, people who fix things, people who promote re-use before recycle, etc.) but we’re open to considering things I’ve not listed if you can make a strong case on how they align with iFixit!
- They need to spend the donation on that mission. This isn’t a bonus for their bank account.
- We can also donate tools rather than money if that helps them reach their goals.
- I’d really love to see recipients from around the world–we’re a global site and we want to support people everywhere. So if you’re not in the US, your community isn’t excluded!
Is this a worthwhile discussion?
