The guys over at JoomStew have started an initative to help Matias Aguirre. He's the developer of the jUpgrade migration tool for Joomla 1.5 to 1.6.

He will benefit greatly if he's able to attend the J and Beyond event in The Netherlands this May. And so will you - as it will improve the way his migration component works and what it supports.

Unfortunately, he doesn't have the $2500 required for attendance and accomodation.

That's why the JoomStew people have started a fundraising initative to help him go to the event.

msf-fundraisingFellow Joomla blogger Brian Teeman has started a fund-raising initiative to raise money for Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors Without Borders).

I want to join him in his efforts and I hope you as a reader will find that this cause is one (of many) which will help people who find themselves in danger.

Brian has chosen Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), Doctors Without Borders, as they are an international, non-denominational, non-political humanitarian aid organisation that provides emergency medical assistance to populations in danger in more than 80 countries.
