Comic Creators for Freedom Drive is now live! You can make your donation here! Or donate under the Team Earthsong banner here if you're so inclined! This is a great cause which I am proud to assist in. I know that the basic freedoms that we have in life are easy to take for granted, but there are so many people out there for whom they are not a reality. The donations made via this fundraiser to Love146 will go towards helping people escape out of slavery and reestablishing their lives.
This year we've partnered directly with Love146, so donations will be made directly through them. Unfortunately, Paypal hasn't been integrated into their systems yet, so that's not an option this year. Still! I hope that doesn't deter you too much from donating. They also have this neat option on their site that lets you do fundraising as teams, setting your own team goals under the main one. So I set up TEAM EARTHSONG! I set our goal at $200, which I'm 100% sure we can do!
The goal of the ENTIRE fundraiser is $5000. That means if each participating comic's readership donated just $30, we'd hit our goal! So I'm going to start off Team Earthsong's donation pool by donating that initial $30 myself. Gotta put your money where your mouth is, right? You don't have to donate under the Earthsong banner! So long as donations are made at all, I will be super happy ^_^
As a thank you for donating, you will receive the "Awkward School Photo" themed wallpaper created by over 160 webcomic participants! The link to this wallpaper will be emailed to you along with your receipt for the donation! Thanks very much guys, and I hope you'll consider making a donation if you can!
Oh, yeah, there's also a new comic page ;)
VOTE INCENTIVE: Because I get some sort of strange amusement out of embarrassing myself with old artwork, I thought I'd entertain you with another blast from the past vote incentive - Tristram's first appearance in the ORIGINAL version of the comic. Yes, that's right, the original. Here's the redone version of that page for comparison ;) It has it's own problems, but is still 100x better than the original.
