Big Mac software giveaway today only!

March 10, 2010

We at innBrooklyn strongly believe in giving. We both try to give often to our favorite charities. Being a Mac lover, I was really excited to find I could get $280 worth of Mac software for only $19.95 out of which $5 would go to charity! MacHeist is a give away event that happens a few times a year in which you can buy a preselected bundle of software for very little money.

The software bundle on sale this year includes the following

  • MacJournal (originally $40): The premier writing app
  • RipIt (originally $20): Effortless DVD importing
  • Clips ($27): The ultimate clipboard and snippet manager
  • CoverScout ($40): Get missing cover art for your iTunes albums
  • Flow ($25): FTP file transferring
  • Tales of Monkey Island ($35): Game
  • RapidWeaver (79): Powerful website creation
  • Tweetie ($20): Twitter client

There is a live ticker on the MacHeist website that updates every time someone buys the bundle and tells you how much money has been donated to charity. (As of 10:00 p.m. 3/9 this total is $300,350!) The only catch is that this offer expires today 3/10 in the evening. You can choose from one the charities below:

  • Action Against Hunger
  • AIDS Research Alliance
  • Save the Children
  • Direct Relief International
  • Humane Society International
  • Clinton Bush Haiti Fund
  • The Nature Conservancy
  • Alliance for Climate Protection
  • Save Darfur
  • Prevent Cancer Foundation
  • World Wildlife Fund

After you purchase the bundle a link is sent to you with all the information about your serial numbers and licensing for your apps as well as download instructions. I just bought mine.. yayyy!

So if you are a Mac owner, go here to get really cool software and help a few charities!

Update 3/11/10: MacHeist Bundle is now closed. $1,250,000 was raised for charity!
