User Liberation: Watch and share our new video by Libby Reinish — Published on Dec 29, 2014 05:32 PM Most people interact with free software every day, but many of those people don’t know what free software is or why they should go out of their way to use it. We want to fix that (and we think you do too), so we commissioned a short video that makes free software easy for everyone to understand:
Please help us spread free software awareness by watching this video and sharing it with friends via email and social media.
We partnered with Urchin to make this animated introduction to free software. Urchin made the video using free software. People have been looking to the FSF for thirty years for explanations about the importance of free software. We want to make more videos like this, and other materials, but they cost money. If we meet our annual fundraising goal of $525,000 by January 31st, you can be sure there will be more great projects to come in 2015.
This is the biggest fundraising week of the year, and we still have a ways to go if we are to meet our goal by January 31st. Please show your love for this video by making a donation or becoming a member today.
