Hey Guys,

I wanted to quickly share something that my company has been involved with recently. My sister is trying to adopt a deaf 4-year-old from Eastern Europe. Disabled children in institutions often face neglect, abuse, starvation, and torture. Journalists have also referred to these institutions as "death camps for children".

Sterling Sky offered to match donations up to $10,000 and I'm excited to share that we accomplished that. They are about 2/3 of the way to their goal and I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to all the people in this industry who have generously donated. I was really touched to see so many faces in the SEO community get behind this.

If you want to help them reach the rest of their goal, you can do so here.

Just a quick update on this. I'm blown away by the support from this community by both other marketing agencies & small businesses who have donated to my sister's adoption. They are now 80% of the way to their goal and I just wanted to publicly thank everyone for their donations. I've compiled a list of the companies who have donated and I tried to match up names + companies but I'm sure I've missed some so please let me know if I missed any. I'll be updating this list as more donations come in!

I must have missed Joy's post back on 9/4 with the status update. It is SO great that the community responded in this way. It's a blessing. Maybe even a miracle.
Thanks Tim. I completely agree :)

They're in the process of all the applications now (which takes months) but I'll update this thread when they are at the next stage.
