Comics By Request: People, Places In Need Of Funding

image* One of traditional fundraisers for cartoonists this part of the year involves the newspaper strip industry raising money through a combination of new and old works, strips and preparatory material, being offered. I believe this year's agreed-upon target for donation is relief for Puerto Rico. There are some fun names in there; the image at left is part of the Mo Willems donation.

* there have been updates and a more ambitious goal provided for the campaign enabling Kate Beaton's sister to explore clinical trials in and out of Canada.

* just a heads-up I focus on charitable giving and giving-towards-need in December rather than project crowdfunding. I love hearing from all of you, but it's a really crowded month and even a standard non-profit has pressures in the end of the year that project-to-project asks generally don't.

* finally, it doesn't seem tied into any particular need, but all cartoonists can use some extra support: Darryl Cunningham has put together a store.
