My friend Vladimir is looking for help. The 5 year old son, little Andrej, of a close friend needs a very expensive operation to hopefully cure his brain cancer.
On his blog, Vladimir has the complete story about little Andrej and also a great offer: donate to Andrej's parents and get a free license of his software! Personally, I use Agenda At Once and Web Log Storming - Great Software!
But obviously, this is not about getting free software, it is about helping a little boy. If you have a few euros or dollars to spare, even the smallest amounts help!
Update and a Small Offer
Little Andrej's parents still need about €40,000.- (~$55,000 USD).
If you PayPal me on my personal account (firstname.lastname@example.org) any amount you wish, I will double the amount you send (up to the discount amount) and transfer it to Andrej's parents. In return you receive a 25% discount on our programs. Any amount is OK, but please be generous.
This offer is valid until the end of
March April 2010.
He is in the hospital now,
He and his parents still need help!
His parents sold their house to get Andrej to a hospital. When he returns, he needs medicines...
Some of my customers really surprise me, in a GOOD way.
I emailed one of my favorite customers, Lori:
"Hello Lori, I know you are a good person. Please see http://watchdirftp.blogspot.com/2010/02/do-you-want-to-help-little-boy-with.html and http://www.datalandsoftware.com/blog/2010/02/28/please-help-little-andrew-and-get-a-free-license/"
I should have a couple of checks in by tomorrow or Saturday. I'll make sure and donate then. More than that though, I will add Andrej to my prayer list. My 9-year-old daughter and I have a prayer list every night. If you could hear her pray, it would warm your heart. Please know she and I will pray for Andrej.
A few days later she donated $100.
Another customer donated $40 and ordered 2 extra licenses without any discount, asking for the promised discount to go to Andrej.
(Thank you Charles).
Good people do exist in this world!
Yes, there are a lot of you who donated who I did not mention. THANKS!
