Sweden - 13 January 2000
Claes Källarsson asked 26 type designers to contribute to a Font Aid font
, with proceeds going to UNICEF.
The reason you are getting this email is simple. I want you to know
about a project i have been working with since last summer called Font
Aid. the idea was simple, let 26 different type designers design their
own letterpair and put it into a font. now the font is finished and Font
Aid has launched. The font is sold at Makambo.com for 10$ and the money
earned from sales will be sent to the UNICEF fund where it hopefully
help those not as fortunate as others, i.e. war refugees and those
who've lost their homes due to natural disasters for instance. you are
recieving this email because i want people to know about it and you can
hopefully help by letting visitors to your websites know about Font Aid.
The more people who know about Font Aid, the more people will buy the
font and then more money will be donated to help those who need it. tell
your friends, tell your family, tell your mailinglist and tell your
visitors about Font Aid.
you can read more about Font Aid on the Font Aid website,
www.fuelfonts.com/fontaid/ - and if you have any questions or comments
just mail me!
From the Webmonkey digest:
Today we're premiering a new article about font-managing programs, and
if you're a fontaholic with a conscience (does such a thing exist?), you
might want to check out FontAid. Claes Kallarsson of Fuel Fonts
organized this project, gathering together 27 of the top typeface
designers to create a single letter for a font. The complete alphabet
goes for US$10, and all proceeds will go to UNICEF to help war and
disaster refugees. The font itself is, of course, a wild mishmash of
interesting characters. Check it out:
