Stonewall Promotion Yields $850 Donation

July 1st, 2019

On Friday I announced a promotion to benefitĀ The National Center for Transgender Equality. I put all of Red Sweater’s apps on sale for 50% off, and pledged to donate the full amount of payments made using the coupon to the charity.

I’m excited to share that when all was said and done, 40 people took advantage of the offer, yielding $843.89 in revenue. I rounded that figure up to $850, and just completed the donation a few minutes ago.

Thanks to everybody who participated and/or helped to spread the word!

Remembering Stonewall

June 28th, 2019

This weekend marks an important anniversary in the history of the struggle for gay rights in the United States, and around the world. Fifty years ago, the Stonewall riots kicked off a movement that has increasingly liberated transgender, lesbian, gay, and other people who fall outside the heteronormative status quo that continues to prevail.

In honor of this moment, I’m offering an unusually steep 50% discount on all of my apps, with all profits going to charity. This offer is good now through Sunday. Use the coupon code “Stonewall” by following this link:

Red Sweater Store – Stonewall Discount

All of the proceeds from anything purchased with this coupon will be donated to The National Center for Transgender Equality. I chose this charity because I believe trans people are less protected than most groups that fall under the LGBTQ umbrella. In the spirit of Stonewall I think it’s appropriate to support this under-represented group.

I’ll cover the payment costs, so the full 50% of list price will be donated to the charity. I will turn off the coupon on Monday and tabulate the total revenues then before making the donation.

I hope you find some great software, and also appreciate the opportunity to support our trans friends and neighbors.
