Do you like Creative Commons? Want it to continue growing? Many people donate as much or as little as they can every year to help keep it up and running so the Creative Commons can continue to provide their tools and services for free. Their 2011 campaign has just been launched, it marks the recent explosion of openness and it runs on the power of open.
According to their press release, you can snatch a precious gift or two if you join their effort: “This year, we are offering a limited teal edition of the CC “I love to share” t-shirt to everyone who donates $50 or more (until supplies run out). For those who donate $300 or more, in addition to the t-shirt, we are offering beautiful hard copy editions of The Power of Open, stories of creators sharing knowledge, art, and data using Creative Commons.”
