Our offer to contribute all proceeds from the sales of Ironworks for the past two days to hurricane Katrina disaster relief was quite successful, raising $522 which has been sent to the Red Cross (Click HERE to see Red Cross verification). Thanks to everyone from Blogcritics who participated and got a copy of Ironworks.
As promised we're now switching fonts to raise additional funds for another charity doing disaster relief in Louisiana, the Baton Rouge Food Bank. All proceeds from the sales of our Guede font for the next two days will go to their efforts to provide food for the 300,000 evacuees in Baton Rouge. Even if you already donated and received Irownworks, you can now donate again and get a copy of Guede as well.
Guede is a display initials font based on the traditional Voodoo veve symbols transformed into letters. I know it's a bit cliche to associate Voodoo with New Orleans, but it's part of the romance and history of the city, so it seemed like an apropriate choice. We think Mme. Laveau would approve. It's also a great font for the upcoming Halloween season.
100% of all sales of Guede will go to disaster relief and we'll cover all credit card or other associated fees. We only ask that you take your font by online delivery to keep our labor to a minimum.
To make your donation and get your copy of Guede for MacOS or Windows just go to our Ordering Site and stop back by in a few days to see the next font and get an update on how the fundraising is going, plus we'll have a third font available for any donations made on Wednesday or Thursday.
