I am so excited to share the launch of a new website by my dear friend Micael “Rabbit” Chadwick. It’s called Roux for You and you can get there by clicking Roux4U or putting roux4u.com in your browser. If you could use a smile and giggle, head on over to the website and check it out. He’s even got a short, fun video so you can see how Roux is created. It’s okay, go now, I’ll be here waiting for you to get back. If you forget how to get back here, don’t worry, just stay over there…..it’s way more fun!
I’ve taken the liberty of grabbing the next paragraph right from Rabbit’s website because I think he explains it best
“Roux for You (Roux4U) is the brainchild of an idea sparked in the brilliant mind of my good friend, Nik. My Roux character has long been a fan favorite by many. This became a way for everyone to have their own Roux in their own way.
Each piece is hand drawn by me to your specifications – whatever you’d like Roux to do for you – on heavyweight 4″x6″ watercolor paper, and mailed to your door. There are no prints. There are no copies. Each piece is a one of a kind original. Scans of each piece will be posted on the website along with your name so you can easily find them and share them with your friends and family.”
I’ve written about Rabbit several times here at Jotter Girl and if you’ve read any of the posts, you’ll know that he is a very special person. Extremely creative, funny and genuine. He has been an inspiration to me creatively but more important, it is his strength as a human being as he lives with HIV/AIDS that makes him quite remarkable. This endeavor called Roux for You is a way for him to generate an income from home, which will in turn help pay for the medicine he needs. A portion of each purchase price goes to HIV/AIDS Research and Awareness!
The website is off to a good start and seems to be creating a good buzz because Roux is just so stinkin’ cute! Next week there will be a free Roux given away to followers of website. A winner will be drawn from comments posted to the “give-away” post from followers of the blog. Keep a look out for the “give-away” post!
I for one, plan to give a Roux to all the special people in my life for their birthday’s this year. So much better than buying a mass produced greeting card.
