Bea Gaddy knew what it was like to be down on her luck. Coming
from a family of domestic violence, Bea went between low-paying jobs to homelessness
and living on welfare. Her luck took a turn for the better in 1981 when she
purchased a 50-cent lottery ticket and won $290. Instead of spending this on
herself, she decided she would feed the hungry on Thanksgiving. This would
become known as the “Thanks for Giving” feast and year after year, people were
touched by Bea’s kindness and would follow in her footsteps.
The “Thanks for Giving” feast was first held on a sidewalk with
Bea providing and cooking all of the food. With the popularity growing, more
and more diners wanted to attend and local grocers and farms started to provide
food. Over the forthcoming years, Bea was awarded with a number of awards
including Unsung Hero Award, Afro American Woman of the Year and Baltimore City
Council Award. She passed away on 3 October, 2001, due to breast cancer.
I got an anonymous request to make a tutorial on how I pick what colours I’m going to be using, so here’s the end result of said tutorial. It is rendering right now and I should have it uploaded in 7 hours (because that’s when I’ll be out of class)… assuming the video renders and exports properly. :U
