11,111 downloads in Google Play. Also: Doubling down on donations

11,111 downloads added last Friday
You can not only download free SoftMaker Office Mobile for Android from SoftMaker, but also through Google Play:
Of course, we donate also for Google Play downloads! Since Google handles the downloads by themselves, the download counter at www.loadandhelp.com does not rise automatically for Play Store downloads.
So, from time to time we need to transfer the number of Play Store downloads. We did this on Friday evening, and this made the download counter jump by 11,111 units. This lets SoftMaker's donations rise by 1,111.10 euro.
Afterburner: How we turned 1500 euro into 3000!
Since our last donation, 4,000 downloads have been completed. Together with the Play Store downloads, this results in an additional donation of around 1500 euro that SoftMaker must make. So we donated 500 euro each for three projects in Germany:
The best: German appliance maker Privileg has doubled down on our donation, thereby raising a total of 3000 euro!
Please continue supporting our charity drive "Load and Help" – tell friends and family about it, talk about it at work, post in web forums, on Facebook and Twitter. Every download helps drive up the donations!
The first 1700 euro have been donated

Moments ago, the download counter has sailed past the 17,000 mark! It's time to make the first donations. We donated the first 1700 euro and distributed them to schooling projects on three continents:
Unfortunately, some project descriptions are available in German only.
Please continue to support "Load and Help" by telling friends and family about it, writing about it in Facebook and Twitter, and by posting the news to discussion forums: Every download helps, every voice helps!
Welcome to Load and Help 2014!

A message from
December 8, 2014
SoftMaker has just launched its charity campaign Load and Help 2014, and we need your support to make it a success!
Every download counts: This year, you can not only download updated versions of SoftMaker FreeOffice for Windows and Linux, but also the full SoftMaker Office Mobile for Android smartphones and tablets. For every download, SoftMaker donates € 0.10 to charity projects at betterplace.org, a non-profit platform for aid projects around the world.
Until December 24, 2014, we offer:
You may use these software packages permanently free of charge, and at the same time you do good because SoftMaker donates for every download.
The more downloads, the more money SoftMaker donates, and the more help projects can be completed. We keep a public tally of all donations, and we will report about every completed project. You can find out exactly where the donation went to that we made because of your download.
Please support us! We are banking on you to spread the word: tell friends and co-workers about, post to Facebook, Twitter and discussion forums, whatever you can think of.
In the last couple of years, we donated more than 27,000 Euro. Let us work together to raise more money this year!

Load and Help goes into a new round. Are you curious about what projects we have funded before?
Here is a list of projects we supported in previous years. Click on each link to see a detailed description of the project. Unfortunately, many of the project descriptions are only available in German.
We want to make SoftMaker FreeOffice available to as many people as possible. Every download counts towards the amount we donate to help projects at www.betterplace.org. Everybody can help and tell others to also get their free copy and make SoftMaker donate even more.
