FireFTP Charity Projector: we're all in this thing together
Where did this money go?After 13 years and 25 million downloads later, donations are no longer being accepted. Firefox has dropped support for FireFTP and FireSSH. I recommend using Waterfox to continue using the addons. Over the years the money went to an orphanage, LGBT rights, domestic violence support, planting trees, and bikes for the disabled.
Thank you for your support over the years!
Business Transparency: how much did the FireFTP project raise over the years?Here's how much support the project has gotten over the years. Thank you to all who donated over the years - I very much appreciate it!

Haha, I'm obviously a crappy businessman - I should've maybe charged $1 per download =]
Next time, I should write a Minecraft-like game ;)
I have no money right now - what else can I do?You, yes you, can be just a positive influence, if not more by helping out right where you are, in your local community.
Suggestions on different ways of being awesome:
Volunteer. Somewhere. Anywhere.
Take what you're passionate about and see how you can also make it beneficial to your community.
If you own a business, donate proceeds to green energy or charity or something beneficial.
Support local businesses and encourage them to do the above.
Buy locally grown food and get a reusable bag.
Ride your bike instead of taking your car.
Go hang out with your kids more.
Go hang out with your parents more.
Take only what you need, not what you can get.
So, in conclusion, as Ze Frank would say: just be awesome.
