The Academy Donates Pennies to a Pirate

It's great to have friends doing interesting and eventually helpful projects and to help when called upon to do so. Although we embark on technical endeavors, we also strive to help people. Mutual friend of EH-Net and The Academy, Johnny Long, could use some help. I have, can you?

Our buddy Johnny Long, founder of Hackers for Charity, who’s also a descendant of pirates and a ninja in training, has decided to move his family to Uganda for an entire year in order to feed and educate the world’s most vulnerable citizens. We applaud his efforts and in return would like to assist him and his family by making a donation. Instead of running a contest this month The Academy Pro has decided to run a campaign that will see us donate $5 for every new user registration we receive from May 13-24. Please do your part in spreading the word in order to make a difference. You can also donate by purchasing a cool t-shirt from the HFC store.
