Submission + - An unusual campaign: Download our software, and we pay money (loadandhelp.com)

martin-k writes: "SoftMaker runs an unusual campaign this year to promote its office suite for Windows and Linux: Download an unrestricted copy of SoftMaker FreeOffice for free, and we pay money. Not to you, but to charity projects around the world. Each download is worth 10 Euro cents of SoftMaker donations. Not a lot by itself, but if you multiply this with a large group people, it might become a sizeable amount of money that helps needy people. The Load and Help campaign is in full swing, with more than 15,000 downloads already completed."

Nearly two weeks into this campaign, the site has logged more than 57,000 downloads. But hurry, the campaign ends on December 31.
