Last week, Reddit announced it was giving 10 percent of its gross ad revenue to charities chosen by its community and opening a vote to decided which 10 would benefit. Now we have the results and the selection is about as Reddit-like as could imagine.
The list includes tech non-profits – the Electronic Frontier Foundation, the Tor Project, the Free Software Foundation and the Wikimedia Foundation – and organizations dedicated to studying the effects of psychedelic drugs – the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies and the Erowid Center.
More than 80,000 Reddit users voted on the charity poll for over 8,000 different charities, with over 250,000 votes cast. The winning 10 will each receive a donation of $82,765.95.
