Back in November we took part in a World Usability Day promotion, donating 100% of Silverback app sales to the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund International. In addition to our own sales, our friends at Optimal Workshop included Silverback in their World Usability Day bundle, and we’re thrilled to say we’ve reached a combined total of $8,500!

The hard-working folk at the Fossey Fund are thrilled too. President and CEO Clare Richardson said: “The Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund protects and monitors silverback gorillas and their groups every day in Africa, so it is especially wonderful to add the support of Clearleft, Optimal Workshop and Silverback software buyers to our efforts. This donation will help us continue our daily efforts to save this important endangered species, including the all-important silverbacks, who are known for their strength and leadership in guiding the other gorillas.”

At Clearleft we’re continuing to support the gorillas in donating 10% of Silverback profits to the Fossey Fund. They currently need help in raising money to build a fence at their gorilla rehabilitation centre - a costly project, but essential for the well-being of the orphan gorillas. To make a donation, or for more information, check out the Fossey Fund website. You can also follow them on Twitter.
