DynCares: Why We Give Back & How You Can Help

To make a difference going forward, you need to know where you’ve been. When I joined Dyn, I found it fascinating that it was founded in a dorm room at WPI and that there was a time when we asked for help from people around the world in order to provide a service that has become rock solid over time. People sent us money and hardware in order to build our network and trusted in us enough to do the right thing and create something amazing in the process.

Jump to 2012 and you’ll see that those 256 Mb sticks of RAM that were sent in have come a long way. We’ve added email to our services and quickly became world leaders in deliverability. This past year alone, we have doubled the number of employees to better serve all of our users. We’ve been to SXSW, ICANN, Velocity and numerous other events presenting, repping and hustling in the name of uptime and deliverability. Better, faster, stronger – it’s what we do.

But that’s not all that we are. We recognize the importance of giving back to our communities so that others can benefit and make a difference as well. That’s why I want to tell you about DynCares.

DynCares - 2011 Annual ReportsDyn encourages all of its employees to give back to the community in whatever way they can. In 2011 alone, Dyn employees have given over 2400 hours through volunteerism and leadership, serving as mentors to youth on FIRST Robotics teams and providing leadership as board members for City Year, Families In Transition and seated board presidents for the NH High Tech Council.

Members of our development team have donated to the open source community through financial contributions and the creation of several public repositories. As an organization, we have given over $185,000 to organizations like the SEE Science Center, the WPI User Experience, the Decision Making (UEDM) Research Laboratory and more.

In 2012, we are looking to do even more and that is where you come in.

Starting now, when you purchase any of our services, you will have the opportunity to make a cash contribution to DynCares upon checkout, allowing us to further give back to some of the charities listed above. 100% of your contribution will go directly to groups and organizations that match Dyn’s values in the advancement of education and technology. Even if you aren’t making an ecommerce purchase, you can contribute at any time. Just set up a free account and you’re all set to go!

With your help, Dyn will be able to give more and together we can make a bigger impact in the world.
