Announcing RDC HQ 2010 + Buy Our Stuff!

A new mentoring season approaches at the Rural Design Collective and we are sprucing up our digs with a new design that has been engineered to last us into the future. We are still under construction, but the framework is in place and we are fleshing out the content. Our most notable new section is BUY OUR STUFF, where you (yes, YOU, Dear Reader … ) can help support our Internet Good Deeds and Random Real World Acts of KindnessTM by purchasing things that we create. This program is currently powered by the sheer will and creativity of the people you see in Meet The RDC section, so every little bit helps keep us moving forward.

We will be adding new items to the BUY OUR STUFF section over the coming months while we plan our program for 2010. Please consider purchasing an item to help us continue our work. Supporters of our program will be eligible for inclusion in the “Friends of the Rural Design Collective.”

We will keep this site on the ‘net for posterity. We had a blast participating in the One Laptop Per Child’s Contributor Program!

As we like to say at #rdcHQ – Stay tuned (… and BUY OUR STUFF!)
