Indie Relief: Use your app buying addiction to help Haiti (TODAY ONLY!)


Indie Relief: Use your app buying addiction to help Haiti (TODAY ONLY!)

There are any number of programs currently underway to help the folks in Haiti. But there’s one little project that features some Portland types that really caught my eye: Indie Relief. Probably because there are some awesome Portland startups participating in it.

The concept is simple: buy any of these iPhone apps or Mac apps on January 20 and all proceeds will be donated to relief in Haiti.

You know me. I love a good cause. And this one is awesome. But I’m even more excited because there are some Portland apps on the list, as well.

That’s right. My favorite bookmarking tool, Portland-based Pukka, is on there. I also spotted Portland’s PDFpen. Even Portland-based GadgetTrak is there—which could help ensure that no one swipes all these cool new apps you’re going to get.

I’ve sifted through the list a few times. And those are the Portland apps that jumped out at me. Did I miss yours? Feel free to let me know in the comments below. Because you’re doing a really really good thing by participating.

And as far as the rest of you go, please go buy some apps from Portland folks. And some of the other cool apps out there too. Because really. It’s not about buying apps. It’s about supporting Haiti relief efforts.

See? No guilt. We’ve totally justified this whole thing. Now go.

Like this post? There are more. Every week.
Plus events, jobs, and community offers.

    Not directly related, but it was cool to see when I checked the lineup that a few of those apps use Tender Support (http://tenderapp.com) for their customer service. We’re also based in Portland.

    TOTALLY related. YAY for tender! I hear good things from everyone who uses it.

    Well, mostly the Urban Airship guys who sit right by me. :)
