WPTavern: DonateWC Successfully Sponsors its First Applicant to WordCamp Capetown

WPTavern: DonateWC Successfully Sponsors its First Applicant to WordCamp Capetown

DonateWC has selected and successfully sponsored its first applicant to WordCamp Capetown. The recipient has chosen to remain anonymous although they are a speaker at the event.

Funds left over from the initial crowdfunding campaign and from the general donation pool were used to cover expenses. The total cost of sponsorship is €669.24 with €197.37 coming from donations.

In addition to sponsoring recipients, DonateWC is also publishing stories submitted by contributors on the benefits and impacts WordCamps have. Arvind Singh published the first story on DonateWC where he explains how his experience at WordCamp Udaipur translated into WordPress meetups in Delhi, India and eventually, the first WordCamp Delhi.

There’s no word yet on who will be the next recipient of a DonateWC sponsorship but the initiative still needs your help. If you believe in the cause, please consider making a donation. The funds will be used to help others who are less fortunate attend WordCamps.
