For Ten Dollars, a Bag of Clay
Here is our video entry into the Pay It Forward Contest, held by our local Alternatives Federal Credit Union.
Alternatives gave out ten dollars to whoever wanted it, and those people were supposed to give it to someone else in the community, an organization or an individual.Then, the giver of the ten dollars is encouraged to make a video or write an essay about their recipient, and in it illustrate what they can do with it that would benefit the community. Afterwards! A committee at Alternatives picks ten or so videos they like the best, and set them loose into the public, where anyone can vote on which entry they think should get the grand prize-oh- $500.
Taking advantage of some beautiful footage our friend Shira took of us, plus friends, plastering the straw bale cottage, I put together this doo-hickey.

More rendered 3D-drawings and pics, a lot about building straw-bale houses and all kind of related stuff. We discuss here:
Even if it is in Finnish, you will understand most of the 3D-drawings and what they are connected to.
You can also comment in English, Russian, Chinese, Swedish, Norwegian or Arabic.
It does not matter which of these languages.
We are interested in all kind of international cooperation.
