Hallo allerseits

Am Valentinstag ist - glücklicher Zufall ;-) - auch der "I love Free
Software" Tag. Eine Gelegenheit, sich bei seiner/seinem
Lieblings-Projekt/-Entwickler/in usw. mal persönlich zu bedanken.
Eine E-Mail, ein SocMed-Post (#IloveFS), ein simpler Händedruck können
da schon viel bewirken ...

Just do it.

Wir alle profitieren ja sehr stark von freier Software, viele auch
beruflich. Ich denke, da ist ein kleines Dankeschön schon mehr als nur
angebracht ...

While you are reading this, someone somewhere is working on improving
the code of a Free Software you use yourself. Although millions of users
depend on Free Software, the people behind the respective projects
usually remain invisible. Together we want to change that. 14 February,
the "I love Free Software Day", is a good opportunity to do so. But we
need your help for that.

Behind every Free Software project is a team of developers, translators
and designers. These are people who fix bugs, make improvements and
provide security updates. They do a great service to our society by
making the code of their software available to the general public. This
cannot be taken for granted. Many of these people do it voluntarily in
their spare time. But how often do we actually thank them for this?

14 February is "I love Free Software" day. On this day, Free Software
users are called upon to show their appreciation for a project of their
choice. It's easy to join in: just write a short message of thanks on
the social network of your choice with the addition #IloveFS. Or write a
short thank you email to a development team. The message does not have
to be long - a simple thank you is often enough. Do you think it's
important for journalists to be able to research the web anonymously
with Tor? Do you regularly use the Firefox browser, LibreOffice, or a
Linux system yourself? Or is there a smaller and less known project that
you personally care about? You alone decide who you want to please on
this day. On the "I love Free Software Day" action page you will find
various ideas and suggestions:

Action page: ilovefs.org <https://ilovefs.org>

The "I love Free Software Day" is an important institution in the Free
Software community. The more people participate, the more we can make it
clear that we value this work, which is immensely important for our
society. We would therefore be very pleased if you too would take part
and take a moment on 14 February.

Best regards,

Max Mehl
Programme Manager
Free Software Foundation Europe


PS: Writing a short message takes only a few minutes. But this small
gesture means a lot to many people. As FSFE we regularly get feedback
from Free Software projects that the "I love Free Software Day" gives
them a lot of strength and encourages them to continue. All the more
reason why we should not let this day pass without a short thank you to
our favourite project: ilovefs.org <https://ilovefs.org>
