The John Slatin Fund Accessibility Project

The John Slatin Fund Accessibility Project matches accessibility experts with companies that would like a brief review of their site for accessibility. In return, the site owner is asked to contribute a minimum of $500 to The John Slatin Fund.

John was a wonderful man and a friend. This project will raise awareness of accessibility and help his wife Anna cover some of the expenses associated with his long illness. Spread the word.

  1. This is an absolutely superb idea, and John truly was a top man. Very sad to hear the news when lost the long battle against leukemia but it’s great to learn of something like this to honour his name.

  2. I’ve never seen his Leukemia Letters blog before. That’s really quite a powerful piece of the internet there, with the original posts from John in 2005 about positive medical results and such slowly transitioning into Anna doing all the posts about his increasingly degenerating condition, and eventually his death.

    I definitely think the fund is a good idea and I hope it helps.

  3. According to email exchanges among the volunteers, what is needed now is a big push to get companies to sign-up for an evaluation. There are many expert volunteers now so the other half of the pairing is what’s really needed at this point.

  4. Jeffrey,

    Is there anything that I could put up on my website as far as something a visitor could click to send a donation to? On that topic, I’ve been spreading the word about it and is there a place donations can be sent also? I’d like to donate a little bit if I could.

    Todd, that’s very nice of you. It doesn’t seem to be set up for direct donations, but I’ll ask.
