TOM THE DANCING BUG TORNADO RELIEF CHALLENGE
THE TOM THE DANCING BUG TORNADO RELIEF CHALLENGE
We've all seen the heartbreaking images and stories of devastation in the wake of the Oklahoma tornado. I'm sure many of you intend to make some donation to help the victims, and I thought I'd create another TOM THE DANCING BUG Challenge to help encourage generosity.
Make your donation directly to the American National Red Cross through a donation page I set up, http://www.firstgiving.com/fundraiser/ruben-bolling/tomthedancingbugtornadorelief, and you could win a specially drawn illustration I would create just for you.
There will be two winners:
- The top donor to the Challenge (multiple donations from the same donor will be aggregated); and
- One random donor to the Challenge regardless of size of donation, $15 minimum.
The illustrations will be 6 inches x 8 inches, and you can tell me what you'd like me to draw (subject to the boundaries of law and propriety), or we can come up with something in collaboration. God-Man fighting Charley the Australopithecine, Hollingsworth Hound in a tutu, Percival Dunwoody riding a Giant Wombat... whatever you want.
The deadline for the challenge is 11:59 pm, May 27, but PLEASE DONATE NOW. UPDATE: I'VE EXTENDED THE DEADLINE TO TUESDAY, MAY 28 AT 3:00 PM EASTERN TIME.
Winners will be announced on May 28.
Thank you, everybody. Hoping you are fortunate enough to be in a position to help in any way.
UPDATE: Tell the great comics writer, philosopher and humanitarian Greg Pak that you donated, and get free CODE MONKEY SAVE WORLD (his Kickstarter launched comic collaboration with Jonathan Coulton) stickers! Details here.
(Clarification: To be absolutely clear, I don't get anything out of this. Nothing. I only use this page to keep track of donations for the purposes of the contest.)
