Donate Software for the Pan-Mass Challenge!

PLEASE NOTE that this is the 2007 version! The current version for this year is here.

Background #

PMC August 3rd, 4th and 5th (Friday - Sunday), I'll be riding my bike across the state of Massachusetts in the PMC, along with about 4400 other riders. Riding the bike for 300 miles is the easy part. The real challenge is meeting my $6600 goal for this cancer-care-and-treatment charity.

Donor Guide

If you donate software, here's how it will work (for most folks):

  • “My cup runneth over!” The Mac developer community has been more generous than I had dared to hope, and I now have more donations than I know what to do with. (See the list, below.)

    In short: Donations Are Now Closed Thanks everyone!
  • Send me an email. Tell me how many licenses you're providing, the name(s) of the application(s), and URLs where I can read more.
  • Please donate at least five licenses per application. If I have at least five of everything, I can do that many identical auctions. (This project is already a lot of work...)
  • Auctions will start in July, if there have been enough donations to fill some discs!
  • Please make sure that my email address (seth dot dillingham (at) gmail dot com) can get through your spam filters. Had lots of problems with donors not responding to important questions, last time.
  • This page is regularly updated with the donor and software list, which is at the bottom.

Extra Important Points

  • After the auction, I'll send the full registration info for the winning bidders to all of the donors.
  • Donors will send the registration codes (serial numbers) or "license files" to me.
  • I will include all of the registration codes (and/or license files) on the winning bidders' customized CDs, with all of their software.
  • End result:
    • the winning bidders only get one email (instead of dozens) with registration info
    • you guys (the developers) have all of the actual info for handling updates, lost keys, etc
    • the winners are less likely to lose their registrations because they're in a file on the CD with the software.
  • Please let me know if this won't work for you, for any reason. Special cases may be necessary. Last time, some of the larger developer/donors preferred to ship retail copies directly to the winning bidders. If that's your preference, let me know.

If you want to know more about the ride, or my participation in it, start here or even try the pmc channel on the weblog.

The biggest part of my fundraising plan this year is this Software Auction. (A smaller version of this auction in 2005 was quite successful.)

Update 6/3/2007: donations have been coming in steadily today, thanks to some key links on a number of web sites and mailing lists. Please don't think we're even close to done! For this project to fulfill its potential, we'll need hundreds of applications. The more the better. (Thanks for being so generous, everybody!


Links #

If you'd like to link to this story, or want to encourage your favorite software developer to participate, that's great! I can use all the help I can get. Please use this link.

Auctions #

The auctions are running now. There will be a series of t least 25 auctions, and they'll continue through most of September.

The Plan #

This page is specifically for software developers (both indies and larger companies!).

Mac Developers Wanted

I'm looking for donations of mac software from the developers. The donated software will be burned to CDs (mostly, there are exceptions). The CDs will be auctioned on eBay. The winning bidders will receive the CDs and a printout (and/or email) with their license codes for each application on the CD.

There will be more than one "set". If enough donations are received, I'll do a few different collections (general, developer, games, etc.).

There's obviously no way to know if every application on the discs will be useful to every potential bidder. My hope is to have a wide enough spectrum that it's appealing to everyone.

I did this two years ago and raised almost two thousand dollars! My goal this year is to raise closer to six thousand dollars. Obviously, that's going to require a lot more software. Please be generous!

All proceeds will be donated to the Pan-Mass Challenge, and in turn to the Jimmy Fund, for the research and treatment of cancer at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. The Pan-Mass Challenge is one of the most efficient charities in the world (over 99% of all rider-raised funds are passed through directly to the Jimmy Fund). I won't make a penny from these auctions.

Please help me to make these discs irresistible! I'd like to have at least sixty different titles before I start the auctions.

To my friends, peers, and heroes in the industry: are you willing to step up and donate some software? Please contact me, ASAP. I'd like to start the auctions in early July, but I need your help.

The Donors #

Warning: don't take the "What is it?" column too seriously. ;-) Most of the developers don't provide these "one-liners" so I make something up after looking at the software's web site.

Note that AWS donated a total of 90 licenses (good grief!), but they'll probably be auctioned in groups of 3 or 10 (think: family pack or small office), so the actual retail value per license will be something less than $29.95. $29.95

The Omni Group OmniPlan 5 Projects. Project and resource management application with an intuitive, graphical interface. Five seat family pack!

Update: Omni has updated their donation slightly. The user will be able to choose between three choices:
  1. A 5-seat family pack of ANY Omni application, include the forthcoming Omni Focus. Note that family packs are only good for a single "private" household.
  2. Two separate (single seat) licenses of ANY Omni application. Great for small offices.
  3. Any two Omni applications, one license each. (Which is really the same as the previous choice, I guess, but this makes it clearer.)

Total Value: (Goal: $20,000)

These numbers are based on the "#" and "Retail Val." columns in the table above.

Many donors offered all the licenses I need to make the project a success, but I've only listed the minimum I expect to use.

In other words, if a donor said I could have all the licenses I need, then I listed them as "5+", because all I know for sure is that I'll use five copies.
