If you have a blog and are reading this take a look at the man above. That’s Andrii Nikitin with his son Ivan. Andrii is a MySQL support engineer in the Ukraine.
Ivan needs a bone marrow transplant operation. The cost is huge and donations are needed to help pay for a transplant.
This appeal for help is extremely relevant to us bloggers (especially WordPress based ones), as MySql is the database used to store all the words, images and videos on our blogs.
Without MySql and the people like Andrii that work to support it, blogging probably wouldn’t have taken off the way it has.
I know there are so many calls for donations to various charities and money is tight for everyone, but even €1 will help.
Hundreds of thousands of blogs, billions of words – one child. Make a difference now to Ivan and donate what you can.
