USA National Doodle Day, Thursday, May 8th…

2008 Doodle Day Doodle

This is so cool. My friend, Rosemary, asked me to participate in this year’s National Doodle Day, a fundraising event to benefit NF, Inc., an organization dedicated to providing support to individuals and families affected by neurofibromatosis (NF). Neurofibromatosis is a genetic disorder that affects one in every 2,500 births. NF is more common than Cystic Fibrosis, Muscular Dystrophy and Huntington’s Disease combined. Funds raised from the Doodle Day auction will go to support education, advocacy, coalitions, and research for treatments and a cure. For more specifics and links, check out:

So the basic idea is for celebrities (by which I mean actual famous people and then also me) to contribute a quick sketch or doodle, and these are auctioned off on eBay starting May 8th and closing May 18th. It’s an incredibly original and creative idea for fundraising. And fun! Check out the galleries: (Again I luck out — with a name beginning with “A” I’m on the first page.)

Spread the word to friends, family, comic collectors, celebrity fans, and eBay junkies!
