Yesterday Sendstation Systems, creators of the PocketDock line of iPod adaptors, announced that it will donate $5 US for every PocketDock FireWire, Combo, Line Out FW or USB sold through the SendStation online store before August 21, 2005 to fight hunger in Niger.
The west African nation of Niger is suffering an acute humanitarian crisis: according to the United Nations 3.3 million people are in desperate need of food, including 800,000 malnourished children.
SendStation will also be offering free world-wide shipping on all orders throughout the fundraising campaign to support iPod users who may be eager to help contribute to the relief efforts. At the end of the fundraising effort, funds will be donated to the United Nations Children’s Fund (www.unicef.org).
This is SendStation’s second global fundraising activity. In January of this year, the iPod accessory maker donated $3,250 US to support Tsunami victims in South Asia.
With free shipping and the knowledge that you are helping to fight hunger, you really can’t go wrong. A PocketDock makes a great accessory for any iPod user. Why spend $40 on an extra iPod Dock for the office when you can get a PocketDock for half that price?
