Kubernetes-native CI/CD platform Codefresh has launched Blog for Good thus giving writers an opportunity to share their DevOps knowledge on the Codefresh blog site in exchange for a $250 donation to one of six non-profit organizations. A second $250 can be kept by the writer or added to the donation.
With this new initiative, Codefresh aims to get funds into the hands of non-profit organizations while tapping the talent of bloggers who write about CI/CD, Kubernetes, containers, or general DevOps topics.
It’s all in an effort to support organizations that benefit the black community, LGBT, people impacted by COVID-19, health needs of women and girls, and other worthy initiatives, Codefresh said.
Participants select a topic relevant to Codefresh and submit their content for consideration. Once selected, the author can choose which organization they’d like to support with $250 or $500, and Codefresh will send the check.
“We as engineers want to fix things,” said Dan Garfield, Chief Technology Evangelist for Codefresh. “2020 has been a hell of a year, and Blog for Good is a great chance for engineers to impact one of these organizations that do so much good.”
The organizations selected to benefit include Black Girls CODE, Direct Relief, Doctors Without Borders, Freedom4Girls, Maven Youth, and Women Who Code.
