Todd Blair, whom I've known since 1999 through Survival Research Labs, suffered a traumatic head injury last year at the Robodock SRL show in Amsterdam. I posted previously about it here. He's back home in the US slowly and arduously recovering. Traumatic brain injuries are probably the worst kind of injury a human being could suffer, and it couldn't have happened to a nicer guy. To help offset Todd's massive medical and physical therapy bills, a fundraiser event is being held this Sunday, July 20th. It's not just an event, but a culmination of lots of work and dedication from Todd's friends and family with some unique creative twists.
The event on Sunday will be the unveiling of the "gear wall". The 7' x 8' wall consists of 25 interlocking aluminum gears built by 25 friends and artists who have committed to raising a minimum of $500 each.
