Buy a font... make a difference... and kudos to Apple!

The Society of Typographic Aficionados (SOTA) is proud to announce the release of “Coming Together”, a font created exclusively for Font Aid IV to benefit the victims of the recent earthquake in Haiti. The font consists entirely of ampersands, to represent the idea of people coming together to help one another. Type designers, graphic designers, and other artists from around the world contributed artwork to the font.

The font will be sold for $20US. It is now available through font distributors Veer, Ascender Fonts, FontShop and MyFonts. All proceeds from the sale of the font will go to Doctors Without Borders, to help with their relief efforts in Haiti.

I contributed several ampersands to this project. Certainly a worthy cause. You can check it out here.

PS... A nd I must add that I love Apple! I know that comes as no surprise to anyone, but in less than 24 hours they fed exed me a free, brand new Time Capsule and everything it up and running and I have internet again. Oh Happy Day! In case you don't know a Time Capsule is a magic piece of equipment that backs up our 3 laptops every hour without us doing a thing. It is also a WiFi base station. The truly fabulous part was that no one argued with me and they not only did want they said they even got the equipment here sooner than they normally do. THANK YOU APPLE! YOU ARE THE BEST!
