HACKTOBERFEST 2022! All you need to know

Happy Hacktoberfest everyone!

This year we’re going to do things a little differently and are taking a more eco-friendly approach to prizes. After 4 successful Pull Request completion, we will make a donation to One Tree Planted which plants trees across the globe focusing on areas in need of habitat rehabilitation.

If you complete the challenge you will also have the option of choosing to receive the limited edition Hacktoberfest 2022 t-shirt & other swags too.
