Fab Labs, digital fabrication laboratories where anyone can make almost anything, are really about the people, not the fantastic technologies and tools they use. All over the world Fab Labs are creating change in communities-- from inner city Detroit to rural India, Togo to Washington, D.C.,-- in schools, businesses and community centers.

Every year the entire community comes together from more than 500 Fab Labs worldwide to share knowhow, best practices, collaborate and learn from each others' successes. This year the annual meeting, Fab12, will be in an historical manufacturing center, Shenzhen, China.

Each year we try to help FABulous Makers from our many Fab Labs with limited resources to attend the annual meeting. It is important for the social, economic and educational initiatives around the globe for all Fab Labs to share and learn. In fact, last year our Fab Lab in Togo won a global Best Project Award from USAID and World Bank for designing and building 3D Printers from parts salvaged from e-Waste dumps.

This year we are looking to raise $10,000 so that we can cover travel expenses to the meeting for our worthy Fabbers who are unfunded. The program is a FABulous mix of formal and informal education, sharing and collaborating, and the participating makers will learn so much! Please join us in connecting the community through Fab Labs where anyone, anywhere, can make (almost) anything and change their world.
