Make Money Contributing to GNU

by Joshua Branson — September 17, 2020

So, the truth is that I and Jeremy Korwin hate having money. It is really quite annoying. We have decided to get rid of some of it, and we hope you will help us.

If you have been wanting to contribute to a GNU project, but did not know how, then here is your chance. I will pay you $1 (and Jeremy will pay 1€) for any single contribution to any GNU project. The only requirement, is that it has to be your first contribution to that project. Examples include:

Please keep in mind, that we will need to be able to verify that this is your first contribution to a specific GNU project. Ideally, you will commit some change to a software project, and we can use git-log to verify this is your first commit to that project.

We are setting aside $90 and 90€ for this "Helping GNU" campaign. First come, first serve. Email me at when your submission is done.

Your email should look something like:

Hey Joshua and Jeremy!

So I contributed my first change to this GNU <software project>.
As you can see my email address is <your email address>.  You can verify that
this is my first submission to the GNU <software project> via this <method>.
You can pay me via paypal.  My email address is: <email address>.


Live long and prosper,

<Your Name>
I'm a rock star!

Live long and prosper.

P.S. If you know of a better payment method, please let me know. Jeremy is in the E.U., and I am based in the U.S.

P.P.S. First new contributions
