I didn't have much to give this year but what I did give turned out to have a theme. In chronological order, here's where I gave money in 2013:
The Mozilla Foundation is primarily responsible for producing the Firefox web browser, the Thunderbird email client and Persona, a secure single sign-in system for the web. Whilst each of these are primary tools for me, Mozilla produces a wide number of products that are working to keep the internet open and accessible. The Mozilla Manifesto is a worthwhile read.
They also a sent a plush Mozilla which a favourite of Hamish.
This is a more direct political approach to ensuring there's a political voice for civil liberties, digital liberties and government transparency. I was very impressed with how this new party handled itself at the 2013 Federal Election and sent them my support to ensure they contest again in the future.
