Giving away design

It looks like Keith is giving away a free blog template design to most deserving individual or group (non-profits only). There are more details and specifics about the rules on Keith's site. I think it is a great idea and really says something about how giving the web community is. Six months or so ago I gave the entire design, markup, PSDs, and imagery for my old nickfinck.com site to a religious non-profit group simply because they emailed me and asked first. Contrast that with those who never asked and simply stole the design and markup without permission. I guess the moral of my post here is that you should always ask, because you never know, they may just give it to you.

hehe funny how you guys comment on eachothers blogs. I've got alot of webdesign relatet feeds in my rss reader: yours, Zeldman, Asterisk, Meyer, Cederholm etc... So sometimes i get the same news multiple times. And yes, giving is very important nowadays. That's the best part of the internet. btw, can you or anyone else, recommend more rss feeds on webdesign. (I've also got ALA)
