Comics’ Giving Heart—People, Projects In Need Of Funding

* the cartoonist and writer Ted Rall is auctioning off a dozen pieces of original art to benefit the Rex Babin Trust. That's a nice thing for Ted to do.

* the Sparkplug fundraising project has settled in at a good distance short of its goal. I hadn't noticed that it's one of the sites that gives you the money you've raise even if you don't make it to the finish line, which is nice.

* Jim Woodring's fundraiser for Fran has met its goal, which is great: he's one of the best cartoonists.

* Rob Clough pushed me in the direction of this fundraiser by Grant Thomas. Other campaigns pushed themselves or had what seemed like close friends do it: one for Ace Kilroy, a completed one for The Antler Boy And Other Stories.

* Alan Gardner caught that the Kenosha Festival of Cartooning would like to raise $10K for doing what it is they do.

* finally, here's Keith Knight talking to Michael Cavna concerning tips to run a successful money-raising campaign.
