Robots for EFF: Artist Creates Robots and Monsters As a Benefit for EFF

The artist Joe Alterio has just announced a fantastic benefit that we heartily support. He is re-launching his project, Robots and Monsters: A Charitable Menagerie, trading original, custom-made art for donations to EFF!

Here's how it works: visit Joe's site, give him $50 along with three words or phrases to work from, and he'll send you an original work of art. EFF gets the proceeds, and Joe's adds a copy of the creation to his ever-growing menagerie of amazing creatures for everyone to enjoy.

Joe launched Robots and Monsters last year as a benefit for the SF AIDS Foundation. With the help of other artists, that project was so successful that it raised over $10,000. Now Joe is ready to support a new cause:

For almost 20 years, the EFF has been on the good side of 1st Amendment fights on the web, and considering that [Robots and Monsters] couldn't happen without this amazingly wonderful and scary tool that we all use now, we figure we owe them one.

Joe is planning to produce a limited number of originals for this project, so act quickly to get your original robot art to benefit EFF!

Thanks for the creative support, Joe!
