    Back in the middle of February, iOS developer and college student Filippo Bigarella released an application icon animation jailbreak tweak in Cydia called LivelyIcons. The jailbreak tweak’s profits were to be donated to multiple organizations to help fight pediatric cancer.

    Bigarella has donated his first round of donations, totaling $2,500, to Because of Ezra, a non-profit pediatric cancer research foundation run by Kyle Matthews (one of the founders of ModMyi) and Robyn Matthews (Kyle's wife).

    Back in February, Bigarella clarified his personal reasoning for why he created the jailbreak tweak and why he was donating his profits to cancer research:

    I think it’s a great way to help other people and at the same time ‘give something back’ to the ones who donate: at the end of the day, you can get this new, little, fun tweak and at the same time do something good for all of us!
    Bigarella’s donations don’t end here. According to his personal blog post, he plans to donate an additional $2,885.31 to yet another cancer-fighting organization from Italy named La Città della Speranza. Afterwards, any profits following the two donations will continue to be donated to organizations fighting cancer. Bigarella promises to keep everyone updated on his progress.

    Bigarella notes a big thanks to Jay Freeman (Saurik), who is quoted as saying:

    I have set the LivelyIcons fee calculation at 14/86 (instead of 30/70) based upon doing some math for "at cost" and sent you a payout ($5,344.70) for this product.
    We would like to give a big thanks to Filippo Bigarella, Saurik, and the entire jailbreak community for making this possible!

    Wow!! I never knew the reason why the developer created this tweak. I have installed the hacked version of this tweak; but now that I know about the developer's good heart, I'm going to uninstall the hacked tweak and pay for the original tweak.. God bless everyone...:-)
