You remember the brothers Marsh, right? They’re the two dudes behind NimbleBit of Tiny Tower [Free] fame? We chatted with them on our podcast? Glad we’re on level because the dynamic duo was recently in the news for doing something other than making a wildly successful free-to-play game. In a heartwarming move, the Marshes gifted 35 iPad 2s and a bunch of “other equipment” totaling more than $30,000 to a small school in City Heights. Undoubtedly, this’ll go a long way in improving the school’s technology education and teaching in general. Also, it makes us go “Awww.”
The reason? The school’s principal was the duo’s technology and business teacher at their old high school. In a statement to Sign On San Diego, Ian Marsh, the right brain of NimbleBit, said they just wanted to give back.
“We knew we wanted to do something to give back, but we didn’t know exactly what to do. I’m a geek when it comes to tech stuff. When I was in school, I would have died if someone handed me an iPad,” he said.
Props to these guys for using some of their skrilla to make the world better. In the spirit of the Marshes, I think I’m going to send a picture of my biceps to my old gym teacher. I think she’ll appreciate that. I mean, who wouldn’t?
