A little over a week ago, I started a Teespring campaign.
What is Teespring
Teespring lets you “create & sell custom apparel” (more info).
You upload your design, set a goal for the campaign and once that goal is reached the T-Shirts will be printed and shipped. If you sell enough shirts, you can gather a little profit with it.
Because I’m interested only in the shirts, not the profit the campaign makes, I thought I’d do something useful with the money and decided to donate it directly to charity:water.
What is charity:water
charity:water makes it their “mission to bring clean and safe drinking water to every person in the world.”
I first heard about that charity from Steve Scott (@macdevnet on twitter). He launched the “Developers against Poverty” campaign in 2011 on charity:water and raised over $60,000 with it, bringing clean water to a community in Ethiopia and 12 others.
I thought that was a very nice thing, so that’s why I decided to donate the resulting money from the teespring campaign to that charity.
There are four kinds of items you can purchase:
Unisex Shirt; back has small cloud logo with text http://www.eternalstorms.at ($16.99)
Female Shirt; back has small cloud logo with text http://www.eternalstorms.at ($16.99)
Long Sleeve Shirt; back has small cloud logo with text http://www.eternalstorms.at ($17.99)
Hoodie; back has small cloud logo with text http://www.eternalstorms.at ($25.99)
If the shirts don’t tickle your fancy, perhaps you’d like to donate directly to charity:water – here’s a link to their donate page ;)
Thank you for your time – I hope you enjoy the shirts. They should start shipping early to mid April 2015, depending on where you live!

I just wanted to let you know of the different ways you can keep up to date with me and my software and how to get in touch with me (besides eMail, of course).
1. This blog
Obviously, I’ll be using this blog to let you know about stuff that’s going on, coming up or has happened some time ago to keep you up to date on new version of my apps, new apps, and some thoughts of mine on different subjects.
I use twitter quite a bit and have twitter accounts for my different applications:
Feel free to follow us ;)
I have a Group on Facebook which you can use to tell us about things you’d like to see, or discuss stuff amongst others!
Though my flickr stream doesn’t primarily have to do with my software (though I do post preview pics of stuff I’m working on occasionally), you might be interested in what I do besides coding.
If you’re like me, you’re having music playing day in, day out. On last.fm, you can see what kind of music I’m into (spoiler: oldies!) ;)
Please get in touch with me :) I’m looking forward to all your comments, feedback, inquiries and critique! Thank you!
