Fosstodon has always taken the approach of supporting what we're focused on; open source projects. As such, we're preparing to make another round of donations and, this time, we're make 2 donations in the amount of $200.00 each!

In the next few days, we'll be posting a survey link seeking your submissions for open source projects that you want us to show some love to. While submissions will be open to our Fosstodon Community Members, the final vote will be determined by our Patreons.

Stay strong, stay safe.
