From December 1st until December 3rd, ProZ.com, Dutch translator and copywriter Pieter Beens and the rest of the ProZ.com community joined forces in a ‘Giving Tuesday’ year-end donation drive and collected over $1,800 USD to be donated to Books For Africa, Concern Worldwide and SOS Children’s Villages. In turn, ProZ.com matched dollar for dollar the collected amount and over $3,600 USD will now benefit these three non-profit organizations.
Funds were collected through ProZ.com membership sales, training purchases, as well as from direct donations, and the translator community also shared their translated version of a very famous quote by Mother Teresa:
Special thanks go to…
- Pieter Beens for proposing this initiative and spreading the word.
- ProZ.com professional trainers Claudia Brauer, Anneta Vysotskaya, Konstantin Kisin and Samuel Sebastian Holden Bramah for donating their time and knowledge.
- ProZ.com users and members who donated through membership and training, or by making a direct donation.
- ProZ.com users and members who proposed their translation of Mother Teresa’s quote.
- Everyone who helped to spread the word!
Thank you all who joined ProZ.com’s 2015 celebration of Giving Tuesday!
