Help raise a dollar on World AIDS Day...

It only takes a second to raise a dollar.... Bristol Myers is donating $1 to AIDS research every time someone goes to their website and lights a candle using their animation.

Help spread the word.

Games for Health competition

Here's a chance to apply those game-design, storyboarding and prototyping skills...

Robert Wood Johnson Foundation is sponsoring a Games for Health Competition with prizes for entrants who develop game concepts or prototypes aimed at improving aspects of health and health care.

There are three specific competitions in the contest - two for storyboards & game treatments ($5,000 prizes), and a grand prize ($20,000) for best working prototype/game. The contest runs through April 1, 2007 (hope it's not an April fool's joke) and winners will be announced by June 1.
