Support BlenderNation with your Christmas Shopping at Amazon

If you're planning to do some Christmas shopping at Amazon, you can support BlenderNation by placing your next Amazon purchase through this link. It'll give me a percentage of your spendings without disclosing any personal information, and it won't cost you a dime. It would mean a lot to me, thanks!

I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-) I also run the Blender Artists forum and I'm Head of Community at Sketchfab.

    Just bought something at Amazon and didn't used the link because I forgot about it - I'm sorry Bart :( Will doublecheck my next order to go with your link

  2. Hi Bart - I've been using the BlenderNation sponsored Amazon link for a while, including for a recent $12K CG computer component purchase. Love your site. As I mentioned to you at SIGGRAPH, my day starts and end wtih BlenderNation. What is frustrating from this side of things is the lack of visibility of sponsorship via that link. I can't see anything on which shows transactions sponsor you or sponsorship totals which can be a little de-motivating. Any ideas on how to gain visibility for that warm/fuzzy donation feeling?

    • Ah, that was YOU! I saw a $200 jump in one day last month, it was amazing! I'm afraid Amazon doesn't offer any options to give me visibility on their site, so I guess this a warm THANK YOU will have to do :-)

  3. Will this work on international Amazon sites? Your link goes to, so their site detects my location and displays a "Are you shopping in the UK?" link. If I click that link and then use, will the donation still work?

      • Great stuff - I'll definitely be editing my bookmark when you've set it up. I wonder if the Blender Foundation has stats for the top nationalities of Blender users, and by implication which Amazon.?? sites they use?

        • I can't speak for, but here's an overview of the visitors here on BlenderNation. The top-5 is:

          - US
          - Germany
          - France
          - UK
          - Italy

          Of course, BlenderNation is an English-only website, so these numbers aren't representative for Blender usage.
