By Request Extra: Dustin Harbin Expands GoFundMe Campaign To Encompass Other Bills Owed

imageHere. After a successful day of clearing an amount in crowdfunding at least $5000 over the initial ask, cartoonist Dustin Harbin has expanded an initial request for funds to help face reconstruction to a wider selection of monies owed. The ask is now at $75,000.

The popular cartoonist and industry figure wrote with gratitude over the day's events.

A couple of thing to watch perhaps is how some friends have advised to work with someone experiencing a negotiating bills to do so in this case, hopefully reducing the total monies owed. I heard of another cartoonist that planned to reach out about local, regional and even hospital specific fund designed to make a dent in this kind of billing, if and when they are in place.

I'll check back from time to time and as newsdevelops, and wish Dustin a peaceful recovery at this early stage.
