Los Angeles, CA, United States, 2014/12/03 - SitePoint and Learnable are teaming up with Google in support for a good cause, helping out penguins through The Penguin Foundation.
SitePoint, one of the world’s leading resources for web developers and designers and one of the top 700 global websites, is raising funds for Penguin Foundation technology projects this Christmas. Kicking off its annual Christmas Sale, SitePoint will donate $75 of the purchase price of a special $144 2-year membership to Learnable, SitePoint’s online learning platform.
The funds will be used to support technological innovations that benefit sea life. For example, the Penguin Foundation is creating an incredible solution to save penguins and other wildlife through the use of magnets for removing hazardous oils from the sea-birds’ feathers. When this project was recognized as a Google Impact Challenge Finalist it caught the attention of SitePoint. “The team here at SitePoint heard about the initiative and found an instant connection with the ingenious use of technology and our shared love for the penguins,” said SitePoint’s General Manager, Simon Julian.
Penguin Foundation board member Matthew Jackson said,“We are delighted to welcome SitePoint on board. Our little penguins are the beneficiaries of this exciting sponsorship which will support little penguin conservation, research and rehabilitation on Phillip Island.”
Dedicated to teaching, recognizing and supporting innovative uses of technology and the internet, SitePoint is pleased to support such a worthy organization and cutting edge projects to enhance the lives of penguins and other sea life.
SitePoint provides the fundamentals and cutting-edge content for web professionals, developers, designers, programmers, freelancers and site owners.
