Disaster Relief. [Jan. 6th, 2005|08:48 pm]
immonen illustrations
I should note right off that I almost didn't post this-- some days, it seems utterly moronic to be making comics about anything, much less an event of this magnitude. The main concern I've had is in simplifying or sentimentalizing tragedy, which I hope I've avoided... mostly. In any case, my intent was to create, or at least, to maintain awareness.



Comics can't save the world, but money goes a long way, and it's not too late to contribute if you haven't and are able. My brother and his family travelled to India for Christmas and are, I understand, well, but many, many people require both immediate and long-term aid.

I've cribbed a very comprehensive list of organizations that can and would use your donation money wisely. We've chosen Médecins Sans Frontières / Doctors Without Borders.
