This thought crystalized last night in my mind: we should make the upcoming World Wide SketchCrawl on April 16th a benefit drawing marathon to raise funds for Japan!
We HAVE to help our fellow artists and all our friends in Japan! They need our help. We have raised money for a good cause before with SketchCrawl and it’s time to do it again. It’s time to come together and draw with a real meaningful and important reason!
Here’s how it could work: Each participant around the world will be responsible for raising a minimum of $100 in donations for his drawing marathon day. It would work very much like an AidsWalk, you’d look for sponsors to pledge a certain amount of funds for you to draw all day. We should get all donations pledged to ArtistsForJapan a trustworthy fund that works through GIVE2ASIA. It’s the same nonprofit that helped us with the Totoro Forest Project, they are solid!
With hundreds of SketchCrawlers around the globe we can make up a significant donation and on top of that we’ll let our Japanese friends, brothers and sisters know how much they are in our minds and our hearts.
