Over one hundred ladies in a snowball fight for charity!


You know we live in a good world when comic creators become the heroes. Lora Innes, creator/writer/artist of The Dreamer, may not wear a cape (or maybe she does?!) but she's performing heroic efforts. She's gathered the talents of over 127 artists to raise funds to fight human trafficking. She started Comic Creators for Freedom three years ago, and so far the annual drive has raised over $15,000 for the cause. The statistics are terrifying. It's not just an issue that happens off in the dark corners of Third World countries. Hardly. It's a problem right here in the shiny United States. When Innes became aware of the horrors happening in her own city, she felt compelled to do something to help.

Here's how it works: comic artists collaborate to create an original image available in digital and print formats. Every artist contributes a drawing of his or her own, original female character, and each year has a different theme. This time it's an epic snowball fight. If you donate during the fundraising drive, you get a digital download of the complete image. With so many talented creators and such a wide variety of characters, it's sure to be awesome. Donations received will be split evenly between Love 146 and Grace Haven House.


Let's see how high we can push the total in 2012. The drive starts today and goes through January 20, and National Human Trafficking Awareness Day is January 11. Keep in mind that even if you can't donate, you can spread the word! Visit the site for more info.

Even the Michael Kors Outlet that did not reach the dizzying heights of success as some of Michael Kors's best sellers were still very, very well made leather handbags. One such Michael Kors Outlet Store Online that became a fashion icon was the Michael Kors Wristlet Sale.
