Last April, Atlassian, a seven-year-old global software company, raised over $110,000 in just 5 days for Room to Read by offering $5 licenses of their two flagship products JIRA and Confluence – they called it the Atlassian Stimulus Package. Little did they know at the time, but the initiative ended up raising enough money to help us build 16 libraries in Cambodia, provide a year of education to 68 girls and publish one Khmer language storybook.
Well, they’re at it again! Following the success of the stimulus package, Atlassian received tons of requests to bring back the deal. Atlassian’s response? Ask and you shall receive. They’ve just launched the new Atlassian Starter License program so users now have the opportunity to purchase any six of their most popular software products for just $10, with all the money benefiting Room to Read.
Talk about a win-win. For Atlassian, it’s a chance to help small businesses and development shops gain access to some of the best tools in the industry at a bargain price while doing good deed. For Room to Read, it’s a new and creative fundraising initiative that will enable us to reach millions more children with the gift of education.
