OpenCollective is such a great product, I love it. Enabling open source projects to become way more sustainable. Great job @xdamman @piamancini!

As I see it today, no project has been more pivotal in helping enable the open source community in being more sustainable than Open Collective. As one of the maintainers of webpack, we would not be where we are today without the tireless support and collaboration from Open Collective. Not only have we been able to support full time one of our maintainers, but have earned an almost 90k dollar yearly budget and continues to grow. Endless thanks to @xdamman @piamancini and the entire OC team. You are changing the future of open source to be vibrant, transparent, and fruitful.

I believe it's really useful for Open Source community. Promoting idea that people can do great Open Source projects and get financial support will allow more people to get into Open Source. More people into Open Source = More great projects and ideas. More great projects = better for everyone 🙂 Also here is useful article from Github on that topic (and OpenCollective was mentioned there):

I'm all for this. I'm a big supporter of open source, esp. on the linux front. Those folks do amazing things, they all do.
