When we started Open Goodies, the company behind the elePHPant, we wanted to create something meaningfull for the community. This is why we decided to give 10% of our revenue to an Open Source project.
Running a company implies a lot of expense; we have to pay for accounting, logistics, insurances, various taxes and many other things. We have come up with the best price possible but we hope we will get enough revenue to order more elePHPants and work on other cool goodies.
So, if you want to please yourself and help the community, get an elePHant! We will come back to you at the end of the year so that YOU can choose the project we will give this money to.
Another project was just launched on Kickstarter by TrueNorth PHP in Canada, they wanted to come up with something a bit special and we can consider they managed to do it with their PHP Mammoth!
To celebrate PHP’s 20th birthday, we wanted to come up with something very special that PHP community would love. After an intense brainstorming, we thought a golden elePHPant was the best object to create. We designed a prototype and it looked really great.
Unfortunately, production time is quite long and our 2015 golden elePHPant would have been available very late in the year. So we canceled the idea of producing a full batch. But… we still have this unique prototype of the golden elePHPant.
We could have kept it for ourselves in our elePHPant museum. Instead of that, we thought it was better that someone, a true elePHPant fan, gets it.
This very special and unique golden elePHPant is only for sale on eBay. You can start to bargain if you really want it!
For the record, the prototype cost is $500; this is what we paid to get it but we decided to start bargains at $1. Half of the money raised will go to an Open Source project, selected by the community.
We do hope you will like the Golden elePHPant and the all idea around it as much as we do!
We are very glad to announce that our first two elePHPant projects as Open Goodies were safely delivered a few days ago.
The already famous black elePHPant from the AmsterdamPHP community arrived at their warehouse last week and we guess the all team now packs hundreds of elePHPants to their new owners.
The fast growing PHP framework Laravel also have its own elePHPant now! Thanks to Brian Retterer, the Laravel community can show their love for their favorite framework.
Both projects were crowdfunded on Kickstarter some months ago, we all want to thank all the backers for their help and we know you will love your new elePHPants.
