As I mentioned a few days ago on Twitter, I’ve decided to contribute to the fundraising efforts of TEAMFOX, an organization that raises awareness and funding for Parkinson’s Disease. It’s actually Michael J. Fox’s organization, I believe.
Richard Thompson, an amazing American cartoonist (Cul De Sac and Poor Richard’s Almanac), suffers from Parkinson’s Disease. A friend of his has started Team Cul De Sac through TEAMFOX, raising money and awareness. As part of Team Cul De Sac’s efforts, they’re asking for art contributions for a book, a book whose sales will work towards raising more funding for research.
I’m putting the finishing touches on my contribution to send in. If you’re a cartoonist too (probably a better one than I’ll ever be, but that’s another story), put something together and send it in. Even if you’re not, you can still donate and spread the word.
We’ll see if they even end up using my contribution in the book (it’s not a guarantee), but all art contributions will be auctioned off for charity. It’s a great way to raise money for a great cause, so you should definitely check it out. I’ll keep you guys updated on the status of the project in the future.
