5to5000 a success in the end!!! Over $5000 was raised by Innovation Camp Teams

Monday, Oct 20, 2009 1:13 AM – As many of you know, our team was able to achieve over 1800% rate of return on the intial $5 (that’s almost $100 from $5 in only 2 hours!). However, what is more exciting is that together with the remaining Innovation Camp 2009 teams, we actually reached our outragous goal of $5000 in less than 7 hours!!! Check out Innovation Camp’s official Charity Challenge page for sponsors who donated and more info.

Jon Chui (pronounced "chew") has been building iOS/Android apps for the last 7 years, the last 3 working on Google Maps, Inbox by Gmail and Google's Search App. Though he grew up in a Christian family and to parents who would end up giving up their 25 years of hard-earned comforts/affluence in Canada to go back to China as missionaries when he was 14, being a Christian was always in his head, and he would constantly struggle with trying to unify the sacred and the secular - until last year. However, through a radical transformation[] @ work last year (which he can't take ANY credit for), he & his wife & 2 young boys have decided to leave Google, sell/donate everything they have so to serve the poor & marginalized with Jesus’ love as missionaries with's Family DTS in Kona, hawaii then to the Philippines. Read more about their family journey @, and reach out to him @ If you're a recruiter with freelance jobs or have tech projects for jon feel free to reach out to him -
