Organizations that add value to others lives deserve support, and freeCodeCamp is no exception. I believe in supporting projects that I enjoy and receive value from. This is why I purchased a backpack from FCC (still waiting on delivery).
I have a few suggestions that might benefit FCC…
- If a supportive merchandise purchase was made within X amount of time, cease the donation popups for X amount of time.
- Instead of asking only for a $5/mo contribution, FCC should A/B test (if they haven’t already) if providing alternative contribution methods increase the average donation per person. I.e. why not a link to purchase merchandise -or- donate $5/mo instead of a monthly reoccurring or yearly contribution? (I am the type of person that despises subscriptions).
3 . (Not popup related) When I purchased the backpack there was a note that stated shipping could take upwards of 12 weeks. Is there no possible way to track or streamline this supply chain?
If these are beneficial ideas and you find value in them, I would like to volunteer my business experience to FCC if at all possible.
