Saturday, 05 Apr11 comments

As March 2008 came to a close, here is an update marking the first anniversary of the i'm charity initiative. It was last March when Microsoft launched the i'm initiative using a special hidden emoticon, and it is progressing very well.

According to the official website, $854,397.63 has been raised for charity so far. This comes down to a monthly average of $71,200 being given away to charity thanks to the i'm emoticon initiative. This is a significant donation on Microsoft's part and the trend will hopefully continue, with donations reaching the million dollar mark in the upcoming months.
