WordPress co-founder Matt Mullenweg donates $1.5 million to help complete an $8 mil San Francisco Bay project lighting up the Golden Gate. This is in addition to an initial $100k pledge when the project started.
Matt originally posted and asked for donations for the project back in May 2012:
The $8 million project was $1.5 million short of its fundraising goals to maintain the display, but project officials announced today that blogging platform WordPress founder Matt Mullenweg donated the remaining amount.
This seems to be a great artistic project that is no easy feat to put together. If this is your first time hearing about the project or curious to see what $8 mil in LED’s look like, check out the video.
Philanthropy. The true end-game of a WordPress entrepreneur! 🙂
