B3ta man makes silly singing website

It's for charity people

New hybrid storage solutions

Joel Veitch, one of the geniuses behind B3ta.com, has made an animated special song and short film for Christmas and for charity.

The song, seasonally chosen, is a twisted version of "12 days of Christmas" and Mr Veitch is raising money for baby charity Tommy's. The film includes the Hoffmeister holding a fish, Ricky Gervais's cat and a bath full of knees.

The website has had over 15,000 hits in the first few days. Apart from donating directly to Tommy's campaign, which you can do from the site, you can also organise your own fundraising over Christmas and New Year. The video has spread far and wide and there are already fundraising activities planned in Canada and the US.

Donations are already coming in but they are hoping to raise £30,000.

In the UK 17 babies a day are either born stillborn or die in the first month of life. In 60 per cent of cases no cause is ever discovered. Tommy's works to provide mums and dads with information on a healthy pregnancy and birth as well as funding medical research.

Go and have a singalong here, and don't forget to donate your leftover Christmas money.®
