On July, SwiftStack has asked bloggers to use the Free Trial for a spin and post their experiences on their blogs, earning them an automatic $50 donation towards the charity of their choice. Between July 11 and August 11 there was an “engagement points” to award an additional $1,000 charitable donation to the winner, and $250 more to the runner-up.

Here are the final results:

1. Andrea Mauro of vInfrastructure earned $1050 for his charity, Caritas Italiana.
2. Dan Frith of PenguinPunk earned $300 for his charity, World Vision.
3. Mark May of Virtual Storage Zone $300 for his charity, The Point Arc of Northern Kentucky.
