We are very happy to announce that the KickStarter project to back Enfys, the Diversity elePHpant has started!
This new colorful elePHpant was created by Peter Kokot (a Slovenian developer) as a photoshopped image. Seduced by the positive image this elePHPant conveys, Mark Baker (a British developer) decided to actually create this elePHPant IRL. Here are some lines from Mark to explain his project:
“None of the money raised via a KickStarter campaign can be donated to a charitable cause, so how does backing this Rainbow Elephpant promote Diversity?
The mere presence of a Rainbow Elephpant in the home or the workplace will serve as a reminder to make people more aware of Diversity issues. It’s a constant visual symbol to us that Diversity matters, and a sign for others that Diversity matters to us, that our workplace or home is more welcoming and celebrating of the Diversity that exists within the PHP Community. And the more Elephpants that you back, the more that message of Diversity can be spread across the globe.”
