Please Donate

For personal and health reasons, I have to move to another state.  This puts me in a difficult situation regarding BMesh development.  It would be a great help and aid my continued work on this project if I could raise $2000 USD.  If I can raise this money, I won’t have any problems finishing BMesh.

Any donations from people would be nice.  If my health tanks, I won’t be able to continue working on BMesh.  To be honest, my obsession with finishing it might survive, but it’d be at least a year, most likely more, before I could start again on the project.

Also, the donations I’ve already received are very much appreciated, they’ve been tremendously helpful.

    A year? And another one for finishing…, not cool. Why no one is helping in this project, I mean coders?
    I wish everything best, but I don’t think that anyone will donate if project is frozen, people are giving money mostly too see results.

    I wish luck in school/job and animation mentor. 😉

    Sorry if I wasn’t clear. That’s what will happen if I *don’t* get the money together, if I do then that won’t happen.

    @Max: You can use a credit card, there’s an option on the donate page. I’d suggest not doing a recurring donation that way, since I’m not sure how you would cancel it if you needed too.

    Hi Max, do you have a good friend or a relative with a credit card who could do that for you if you pay if now in cash? that’s what I did yesterday, as I was in the same case as you…

    I am really sorry to ear that. I really hope that you will get better soon. I am eager to see bmesh integrated in blender but your health is much more important. So don’t rush and take care.

    Oh you added donate status bar, good idea. _Probably_ I will earn some money in next month, if so, I will certainly donate you 🙂 Maybe I can’t give much but always 1% less to go 🙂

    To all.
    Donate, BMesh project is very important for Blender to grow quicker and we have good coder here in need.
    Maybe someone should ad it to news on Blender Nation?

    Hey Joe! Nice to see some new commits to the bmesh branch today=) Don´t forget to update the donation counter once in awhile so people can see that their donations make a difference..

    2000$ is totally unreealistic. He didn’t finish DSM for 4000$ and he won’t finish BMesh for 2000$.

    Save your money guys!

      Heh. Well, can’t make everyone happy I guess. For your information, DSM *is* finished, or as finished as it can be without the (scheduled after 2.5) developer review and then a period of extensive user testing.

    same here, great work joeedh.

    John, really really strange comment. Joeedh did surely so much for blender that 20 000$ wouldn’t pay that if he was a full time paid developer with standard salary….
