If not for our community of designers in Eastern Europe, 99designs wouldn’t be what it is today. A quick glance at our site reveals just how many talented designers are located in Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia and the surrounding Balkans.

In light of what these individuals bring to our community, we want to give back in this time of need. We urge you to donate to the relief efforts in the Balkans. And if you do, 99designs will match your donation to the Red Cross, dollar for dollar (or $100 for $100) until we reach our goal of $10K. PayPal donations make it easy (credit cards accepted, too) — just hit the button below.

While the total damage in lost homes and infrastructure has yet to be totaled, there are still tens of thousands without shelter in Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Croatia. With your donation, together we can offer some real support.
