Here's to you, HEROES
Charity auctions net 20K for Hero Initiative.
Marsha and I are very proud to report that our second annual "12 Days" auctions for the Hero Initiative were successful beyond our wildest dreams. This year, we were able to raise just over $20,000.00! This is a stupefying number, literally doubling last year's amount.
Your help will go a long way to making life easier for some of the older creators out there, who aren't in the social safety net.
This speaks to the generosity and good will of my fans and readers alike in a way I can never repay. You guys are simply amazing, and I want to thank everyone who bid this year.
I want to give a special tip of Santa's chapeau to my dear friend and Art Dealer, Albert Moy. Albert likes to act like a hard-nosed businessman, but the big softy laid out high numbers to win 6 of the auctions. Thanks, man. You're my hero this year.
BTW- the image is a piece my genius cartoonist buddy Mike Holmes did for me this year. As you can see, I love orange pants. Thanks, Mike! You're the best.
Anyway,love to all y'all and thanks so much
Darwyn and Marsha
