“An idea like MacHeist comes along once in a generation. I think people will design cities around this website. No, wait, I’m thinking of the Segway. but MacHeist is still pretty cool,” said Wil Shipley of Delicious Monster, in the press release.
MacHeist will be donating 25% of net sales to eight participating charities, including United Way Internation, Direct Relief International, AIDS Research Alliance, PreventCancer.org, The Nature Conservancy, the World Wildlife Fund, The Hunger Project, and Save the Children.
In addition, the popular RSS aggregator application, NewsFire, and the award-winning text editor, TextMate, will be unlocked for all customers when sums of $50,000 and $100,000 have been raised for the charities, respectively.
“Our mission is to increase awareness of Mac shareware, while supporting several great causes in the name of the Mac community,” said event co-founder Phillip Ryu, in the press release.
The sale will last for one week, and end on midnight, EST, December 17th.
