SiteLock Water Drive Helps Homeless Beat The Heat of Summer

At SiteLock, we are passionate and committed to giving back to the communities in which we live and work. In July of 2018, SiteLock teamed up with the Phoenix Rescue Mission for their “Code Red” water drive. With temperatures hitting the triple digits during the summer months in Phoenix, the SiteLock team wanted to provide relief to those without access to shelter or water.

We are proud to announce SiteLock employees donated a whopping 23,537 bottles of water to the Phoenix Rescue Mission. Not only that, but SiteLock matched our employees’ donations, contributing more than 47,000 bottles to the drive!

And there’s more good news! The Phoenix Rescue Mission also had a third-party company match SiteLock’s donation. Together, we donated over 70,000 bottles of water to those in need to cool down and get some relief from the summer heat. Check out some photos of SiteLock’s water drive donation!

About the organization: The Phoenix Rescue Mission is devoted to providing help, hope, healing, and relief to the homeless men, women, and children of Phoenix and its surrounding communities.

WordCamp Denver 2018: WordPress is People!

“WordPress is People.”

That was the underlying theme of this year’s WordCamp Denver, but it’s also the theme of the WordPress community in general. Many of us who consider this amazing community “family” (myself included!) have our own stories of the odd, unexpected, serendipitous journey that led us here.

WCDenver 2018 coffee speaker's gift

The speakers gift coffee label made me laaaauuugh!

Many of us worked for years with WordPress, isolated on our own proverbial island, before we even discovered the WordPress community exists! But whether it was finding an answer in the .org forums, reading a helpful tutorial posted by someone who’s been there done that, or just referenced the Codex to learn the inner workings of a theme function: we’ve all benefited from community contributions in some way. And that experience is what drives many of us to give back to the community ourselves.

There were so many thoughtful and personal touches that went into this year’s camp, it was obvious the organizers and volunteers have a deep connection and love for the community.

WordCamp St Louis: It’s in the Details

While Portland was having an out-of-season heatwave this past weekend, I was lucky to jet off to St. Louis, Missouri for their… out-of-season heatwave!
