Fundraiser for Todd Blair

On Sept 23 of last year, Todd Blair was involved in a serious industrial accident after an SRL show in Amsterdam. A large metal structure fell on him, knocking him over and causing traumatic brain injury. The next five months were spent in a Dutch hospital, re-gaining and losing speech and motion, fighting seizures, and many other complications.

Todd suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI) and his recovery time is going to be long and unpredictable. SRL's liability insurance provided by Robodock has seemingly been denied and Alex and Todd need help to survive financially through this next chapter of their recovery.

A fundraiser has been created to
raise $20,000 for Todd's care and rehabilitation. Artists from around the world have been invited to create a kinetic sculpture consisting of a series of gears designed by the artists. I have committed a gear and in doing so am asking my friends and colleagues to make any size donation they can to help with this cause.

You can find out more about Todd Blair and this cause at the SRL website. I will post the production process of my gear here on my website.

Ready to donate?
