This just in from Don Hahn via Facebook. Not directly Disney-related but I know that many of you will want to support this:

[Alright animation fans, my pal Ron Diamond is putting together an insanely great project to showcase animated short films to the world, and no one...really, no one, works harder or more passionately to present the work of Planet Earth's most brilliant talents to the rest of us animation starved viewers than Ron. Short films are about risk, experimentation, wonder, inventive technique, solitary expression, artistic bravery and so much more. So dig in and support Ron on Kickstarter and you'll be supporting some brilliant talent that needs to be seen to be believed! Click it and give, then back to The Bachelorette!]
