Webcomics Telethon for Hurricane Katrina Relief
Posted by Nathaniel at 9:35 AM
I stole this from Eric fair and square, but I doubt anyone will mind. It's actually from Brad Guigar.
Some of you might remember the Webcomics Telethon for MDA that I organized through AltBrand Comics. You can see the site here.Please participate in some way. Either by donating comics or donating money. Stuff like this simply shouldn't be happening.
The site updated with new comics from participants throughout three days, so there was plenty of reasons for readers to keep tuning in to the Web site. Donations were accepted through PayPal and then donated on behalf of the Webcomics Telethon.
I'm thinking it might be time to dust off the Telethon and re-purpose it for the people devestated by Hurricane Katrina.
Blank Label Comics is going to host a Webcomics Telethon for Hurricane Katrina Victims the week of Sept. 12. I have registered www.webcomictelethon.com for this purpose. I'm going to wait to see how many participants I get before I specify how many days it will go. Depending on how many participants we get, we could make it a two- or even three-day gig.
ALL of the money collected, including donations and money generated from the ads on the site, will be donated to the Red Cross.
Interested parties should:
(1) E-mail me at email@example.com so I can start generating a head count.
(2) Prepare a special comic strip for the Telethon. We don't have much time, so please do it now, while you're thinking about it. It does not have to be about hurricanes or donating money unless you want it to be. Look through the AltBrand Telethon site... there was some fantastic comics generated out of that. Keep it under 600 pixels wide. Any depth.
(3) E-mail me your comic. Include in the e-mail your name, the title of your comic, and your Web site's URL.
(4) Spread the word.
