[prMac.com] Portland, Oregon - As you may have heard, the city of Christchurch in New Zealand had another major earthquake a couple of days ago, having suffered a big one late last year. This quake (or series of quakes) has done a huge amount of damage, both to homes and major landmarks like the cathedral. Hundreds of people are still missing, and at least 75 were killed, with the toll still climbing.
David Sinclair, owner of Dejal, an indie Mac and iOS software publisher, said "I was born in New Zealand, and lived there until 2001. Although I don't have any friends or family in Christchurch, I know people who do. I feel that I really want to do something to help the relief efforts."
Dejal has announced that for the rest of this week (i.e. till midnight PST on Sunday Feb 27, 2011), it will donate 100% of the proceeds from Dejal Mac app sales to the New Zealand Red Cross, to help fund their relief efforts.
Dejal Mac apps include:
* Simon: Monitor sites for changes or failures
* Time Out: Break reminder tool with micro-breaks (donate any amount to get a version 2 license)
* Caboodle: Lean, clean snippet machine
* BlogAssist: System menu to help with HTML markup for blogs and more
If you're at all interested in any Dejal products, now is the time to buy. Your money will help those suffering from this disaster. And if you don't need any of the apps, Mr Sinclair urges you to make a donation to the NZ Red Cross directly.
