Trick or Treat – For charity
To get into the festive spirit, BIM Object, a Swedish BIM component portal have released a Halloween style pumpkin which can be download as a Revit family amongst other formats. They will be donating €1 for every unique download. (I’m not trying to bankrupt BIM Object) but if we all downloaded and shared this with our friends, a fairly susbstantial amount could be raised for a fantastic charity.
“Today BIMobject® launches its charity campaign! A Halloween pumpkin has been created as a 3D object which is available as a free download from the highly successful portal: bimobject.com. For every unique download of the Halloween Pumpkin, between October 26 and November 5, BIMobject® will donate 1 euro to “Världens Barn” – a Swedish fundraising campaign with a global reach.”
”Världens Barn”, meaning “Children of the World”, is organised by the Swedish Radiohjälpen Foundation with the focus for this year being: “Health, education and a future with dignity”.
