Over at The Scriptorium we’re as shocked and horrified as everyone else by the magnitude of the disaster in New Orleans and Mississippi and we want to do what we can to help. Since we make fonts, we’re going to put those fonts to work for disaster relief and offer a little incentive bonus for supporting the Red Cross.
We have several fonts which are associated in one way or another with the city of New Orleans. Each day during the next week we’re going to take all proceeds from the sales of one of those fonts and donate it to the Red Cross disaster relief fund. We’ll change fonts every couple of days so you can donate more than once and get more than one cool font for your efforts. At the end of the period we’ll total up the donations and pointlessly declare one of the fonts the winner – but hopefully everyone wins with this plan, since the Red Cross gets money and font fans get fonts while helping out the victims of Hurricane Katrina.
The first font we’re featuring is Ironworks, which has the look of letters made from wrought iron fence in the style for which New Orleans’ Garden District is famous. This is also a new, slightly improved version of the font, featuring some special characters which can be put together to make a decorative wrought iron fence border. In addition to the New Orleans connection, Ironworks is naturally great for Halloween, which is coming up frighteningly soon.
To order Ironworks for MacOS or Windows just go to our Main Page and follow the link from ther eto order. You can stop back by in a few days to see the next font and get an update on how the fundraising is going. Orders are secure and we take all major credit cards and PayPal.
You can also make donations direct to the Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund through a link here at Blogcritics, and you can also donate by calling 1-800-HELP-NOW.
