Ars community provides over $36,000 in annual charity drive



During the last month or so, I have been pestering Ars readers to offer as a great deal as they may possibly in our 2017 Charity Force sweepstake. All advised, Ars Technica readers donated $36,738.11 to Infant’s Play and the EFF through our 2017 charity force. This is slightly below the roughly $38,000 percent in the closing two years, but the whole is still tons bigger than each and every other year we have run the drive. Incredible job!

Because of every body who gave anything they may perhaps. We are still very early in the strategy of deciding upon and notifying winners of our swag giveaway, so do not agonize should you have not heard if you’re a winner but. Inside the interim, have fun with these rapid stats from the 2017 drive.
