Fundraising


A diagnosis of cancer is a frightening life-changing event, and one that unfortunately occurs every day, quite possibly to someone you know. For the last couple of years I have seen more and more women suffering, and hopefully recovering, from breast cancer. I have also seen friends and family suffer different types of cancer. It is frightening, and affects the person with the disease and all those around them quite profoundly.

I don't know what to do about it. I'm not a researcher, and frankly not at liberty to donate much time or money myself. I want to do something, anything, to help people with cancer, so to start with, I have created a fund raising page, in which I hope to raise $1000 for the American Cancer Society. Hopefully we can do more than that, but let's be conservative. I chose the American Cancer Society because there are so many different kinds of cancer out there, and the society fights the disease on so many levels.

I'm not sure how my company HappyGlyphs Comics can help, but I am thinking of ideas. I can't afford to match gifts, but maybe I can gift those of you who donate, with either special artwork or a book. Any ideas? Please let me know. Meanwhile, I will try to think of something special to thank you for your donations.
