The blendernation blog has been having a rather successful fund-raiser to help the less fortunate. Check it out here and drop a dime to help. For those who don’t know Blender is a free, open source CG content program. Modeling, animation, rendering, editing, compositing- the works. For anyone interested in getting started in Cg but not feeling like they wanna drop a big wad of cash this is a fun and useful way to get your CG feet wet. And the program seems to have some horses under the hood as well. The blog usually communicates within that blender user community, but this fund raiser info was sent to me in an email.
Awesome stuff, fellas!
