Font Aid VI: Aster Affects is available from SOTA (Society of Typographic Aficionados). The font is a collaborative effort of 241 designers who contributed glyphs to the project. They can be used freely in your own projects or sites with few restrictions.
Aster Affects is a font of imaginative shapes based on the humble asterisk. Fun to play with and use. Restrictions disallow use of any of the glyphs as the basis for a logo. While there are plenty of other uses for star-like shapes, logos commonly employ similar designs, but I understand that even donated glyphs are creative and personal works. In any case, some of the glyphs might provide inspiration as a springboard for your own designs.
The Made for Japan collection is filled with interesting, beautiful, and whimsical glyphs suitable for a variety of design projects. Many images are iconic symbols of Japanese life and culture. Get it while you can and know that your purchase is for a worthy cause.
Each annual Font Aid project is released by SOTA as a charitable work. They donate all proceeds directly to disaster relief or other worthy causes. Font Aid V proceeds were donated for the relief of victims of the 2011 Tōhoku Earthquake and tsunami.
Font Aid projects remain available for a year or so, and then disappear. Font Aid IV: Coming Together a font comprised of ampersands, is still available, but earlier projects, such as Font Aid III: Fleurons of Hope, have disappeared.
