[UPDATE: First 250 donated Sheldon books went out today! Keep e-mailing me charities!]
I feel very blessed and grateful for the life I've been given as a cartoonist. For some wonderful reason I get to draw these silly cartoons, you kindly read them, and somehow I make a living off it.
So this Christmas, I'd like to give back to charities that could use some help — and I'm soliciting suggestions. I'd like to send full carton boxes of 40 Sheldon books to different service, poverty and literacy charities around the U.S.
So far, I'm sending a few hundred Sheldon books to the Walter Reed Medical Center in Maryland, and to USO airport facilities in Texas, DC, and Los Angeles. I'd like to send a few hundred more.
Do you have a suggested local charity in your area that you *know* could use a box of all-ages, family-friendly Sheldon comic strip books? Check with them directly to make sure they can/would like to make use of them — then e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
(Checking with them, first, is critical: I don't want to mail them off without the charity knowing they're coming!) :)
I may not be able to give to every charity you contact/work with, but let's at least try! Let's get these winging across the country before Christmas!
