Hi everyone -
It's been two days since we launched the 2014 Meteor Challenge. This week until ,sponsors from the Meteor community are donating $5 to CodeNow every time someone new stars Meteor on GitHub. If we can introduce 5,000 people to Meteor by then, we'll raise $25,000 for kids learning to code.
We've broken $6000, we're a quarter of the way to our goal, and my twitter feed is full of #meteorchallenge-- all thanks to you. We're right on track for hitting $25,000 . Let's see if we can kick it up a notch and get there early -- I want to see how fast you can raise 3,500 more stars.
Let's each take a moment today to share the Meteor Challenge. E-mail is the most powerful way to do this -- nothing beats a direct message from a friend. Forward this to your eng@ lists, developer groups, and school listservs with a quick word on why you think they should check out Meteor and star it.
We can watch the numbers go up together at challenge.meteor.com. Give a shout on #meteorchallengeafter you've e-mailed your friends, and I'll favorite/retweet you!
PS - If you're making money with Meteor, it's not too late to join in as a sponsor! Just firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know how much you'd like to pledge. More sponsors means we can raise our goal, reach even more new Meteorites, and help even more CodeNow kids.
