Today has been a super productive day.

First of all, Mrugesh finished his work getting our updated donate page live. I’m going to sleep early so I can wake up fresh and finish the article announcing the new features. The article will also explain how supporters can do things like:

  • Create a new donation
  • Stop a recurring donation
  • View your donation history
  • Update your credit card information
  • Change the amount of your current recurring donation
  • And download all of your donation receipts so you can deduct them from your taxes

I will also finalize our “support freeCodeCamp” message that will show up at the end of each article during the remainder of the holiday season (similar to how The Guardian’s message).

Finally, I got completely caught up on my personal email, Twitter DMs, and Forum DMs.


I edited two long articles on News, and pulished them on WeChat and Forum. I talked with two new contributors. They’ll help editing WeChat articles and translating the second half of 1000+ New tags. The video translation goes well. We’ve got some feedback from the audience. I’m updating them.
