This is for a charity website I just built. Have a friend whose daughter seemed to be in the clear from her childhood leukemia. Now she has a kid, a husband, a job as a teller at a local bank... and a relapse into cancer. Without a bone-marrow tranplant she won't be around.
Cost is going to be pretty high. The CO-PAY after insurance does its job... $80,000.
Anyway to the contest
I'm going to change my avatar in here to the one submitted by the winner. Need something that pushes the site... Got-Marrow.org. I'll post the best of them on the blog associated with that site, with backlinks to the site of the guy that submits them.
No money involved, just backlinks, thanks, and the knowledge that you did a good thing. Specs on an avatar... traditionally 80x80 pixels. Aside from that, you are limited only by your imagination. I know we have some talented folks in here, so I look forward to seeing what my new avatar looks like.
btw - I'll toss in blogroll links for anyone that uses one of the avs in here or gives it a link in their sig. My only financial interest in this site is paying for the hosting, the template, and spending time building it. In other words, I'm not into this for money, this is purely a charity venture. Any assistance you provide by way of a Facebook mention, Digg, etc is appreciated.
Now that's a good idea... incorporating the footer. Sends exactly the right message. Nice work Aziz.
Wow... are you gonna be the only one? You'd think more people would want to make this picture go away.
I'm not a designer at all, so I won't be placing an entry. But what I can say is that I wouldn't look further -- this avatar from Aziz kind of made it all IMO. Great design and the message is really good visible

I've actually designed a buncha stuff like that for various folks sites, but most of the software I used hasnt followed to my current computer as my role on the web evolved... and it seemed like a contest would be more fun anyway.
That said... I tend to agree with you... Aziz design is effective and well done. I'm letting it run an appropriate length before shutting down (2 wks I figure)... but using his design would by no means be "settling"... it's better than designs I've seen in some places where we had a number to select from. Using the text from the site was a good idea. He has excellent instincts.
Been a bit wild on this end lately. Well past time to wrap this up... and yep, Aziz entry may be the only one, but if done well it only takes one. I like it. Thanks for the new av, and I'll mention it on the site with a link back to your site.
