Design For the Other 90% & Other Links Big and Small



A few links I've been wanting to share = time for a Friday link list.

1)
Design For the Other 90%. I'd really like to see this traveling exhibit. The basic premise: “The majority of the world’s designers focus all their efforts on developing products and services exclusively for the richest 10% of the world’s customers. Nothing less than a revolution in design is needed to reach the other 90%.” —Dr. Paul Polak, International Development Enterprises

2) Is it the cutest 12 second video ever? I think yes. Allison is SOOOOO close to winning the scholarship she deserves. Go vote for her here. It's super easy — no registration. Just click over, scroll down and click Me + Italy.

3) Make your own
scratch-off Father's Day card. It's like a lotto ticket. But you can't lose.


4) I love this story of parents doing the best they are able for their child. Help spread the word about the Gwendolyn Strong Foundation. GSF seeks to raise awareness about and fund research for Spinal Muscular Atrophy and support those impacted by SMA and other life-altering diseases.

5) It's hard to stop staring at these pretty soda bottles.


6) Starting this Sunday, please take part in the
3-day silent auction on behalf of Carol Decker. Carol went to the hospital to deliver a baby, but came away blind and as a triple amputtee. Show your support for this young and beautiful family.

7) Look what's coming to Ikea in time for Christmas shopping.


8) Come see me at free
Hands on Social Media sessions tonight and tomorrow in Denver and Boulder. More sessions in other cities next week.

9) I think I'm going to make
this string sphere for Oscar and Betty's room. Maybe in yellow? Via Say Yes to Hoboken.

10) Photo class/Playdate? Sounds like my kind of get together.
