donate to pfsense?
« on: November 10, 2015, 04:02:09 pm »
So there use to be a way to donate..

I have had recently people ask if they could send me money for help, I have logged in to their setups remotely, etc.. 

I am not here for that, and happy to help when I can - I just tell them to donate what they would give me to pfsense.  But how can they do that?  Should I just have them donate to freebsd?

Not talking any serious money here, they want to buy me a beer or a coffee, etc.. $20 in the last example.. But while I appreciate the offer, the guys that deserve that beer or coffee more are the guys doing all the work that bring all of us such a great product.

So where should stuff like this be directed?  How can they/we/me donate to the cause - other than buying gold or tshirt/stickers/book/etc..

- Please don't PM me for personal help
- if you want to say thanks applaud or https://www.freebsdfoundation.org/donate/

TL;DR: donate to the FreeBSD Foundation.

I keep meaning to link to it on the get-involved page: https://pfsense.org/get-involved/

Thanks for all the help and for pointing people in the right directions!
