UFO Scraps to Make-A-Wish


Over the last 6 months, dispite my efforts to avoid scraps, I have accumulated around 4 lbs 15 oz 6 lbs 11 oz of scraps after creating samples for the UFO boxes. I thought for a while about what I could do with these samples... sell scrap packs? Give them away in the hopes that someone would use them? Or auction them off for charity?

Well I've decided to auction them off for charity! Sure, 6 lbs of scrap filaments from brands like Proto Pasta, Fillamentum, HQA, 3D Fuel, Village Plastics, Snolabs, Makerfiber, Makeshaper, Polymaker, Zyltech, Matterhackers, HERZ, 3D Print NY, 3D Solutech, AIO, Prusament... may not be a lot. But it's not about the filament, it's about the charity...

There are many children in the world with critical illnesses, who may not have many holidays left to celebrate. I personally would love it if the 3D Printing community could help grant at least a single wish this Christmas to a child and put a smile on their face. So I have setup a page at Make-A-Wish to collect donations, but I have also setup a charity Auction for a single package of 4lbs of filament sample scraps. All proceeds from the auction will go to Make-A-Wish.

The person who wins the auction, I will also give a special prize on the side... call it, the Charity Mothership =)

Thank you to everyone!


** Note: I cannot guarantee the prinatability of the filament scraps, as some have sat out for up to 6 months, so they may need to be dried. Also I cannot guarantee there won't be tangles involved lol. These are leftovers on spools after making the samples for the UFOs.
