$10 – its a small price for a great cause

It’s a small Lotus world!

Just in case you’ve been living under a rock for the past month (or been preparing slides for Lotusphere perhaps), you may not have heard about the great contest that The London Developer Co-op and Elguji Software are running leading up to Lotusphere 2011.  Bruce Elgort fills us in:

Matt White, Ben Poole, Mark Myers, The London Developer Co op, Gayle and myself are proud to announce a fund raising effort to help raise money for the Children’s Cancer Association (CCA). The CCA brings JoyRx to seriously ill children and their families, in the hospital and at home. When families need support, CCA is there with award-winning programs and resources, available at no cost to those in need, in Oregon, SW Washington and across the United States.

This fund raising event will center around a beautifully framed “pixel graphic” entitled “It’s a small Lotus world” that will be raffled off. The graphic is an amazing “realistic” look at the Lotus community “world” which we love. The drawing will be held on Monday, January 31, 2011 at the UKLUG night event.

To enter for the drawing you can purchase ticket(s) via PayPal or from Matt, Mark, Gayle or myself at Lotusphere 2011. All monies collected will go directly to the CCA in honor of Danielle Elgort who lost her battle with a brain tumor in 2003.

These are great prizes (2 x 8’x11″ and 2 x 12″x18″ framed copies), to be awarded to winners of the contest for which just a small entry fee/donation of $10 is required.

To whet your appetite still further, here’s another peep at the artwork:

(I also interviewed Matt White and Mark Myers about this contest for the Lotusphere Podcast – its a short 10 minute conversation, and is well worth a listen!)
