The folks at BlenderNation.com just started a great project to celebrate their first birthday. The Blender Community can donate money to an Oxfam (charity) project that helps developing countries. Bart writes:
I’ve been playing with this idea in my mind for a long time until I came across an initiative by Oxfam: Oxfam Unwrapped. They allow you to buy ‘gifts’ that help communities in developing countries help themselves: you can buy a sheep or a goat, products for agriculture and many other things. One gift caught my eye in particular: an entire classroom.
I want to raise enough funds to finance a classroom with the entire Blender community.
Now, it’s not cheap: a full classroom costs ?1,700/$3,350/€2,500, but I’m confident we can raise that money together during the next two weeks.
So visit BlenderNation.com now and donate a few bucks to this great project!
