FUNDRAISERS AND OTHER EVENTS
This page will be dedicated to fundraising events by friends and people I know in the community. Some of these endeavors will be of a personal, rather than industry related, nature.
If you have a fundraiser, be it on line or in person, send me a message at firstname.lastname@example.org with the pertinent details.
*Note: All event postings messaged to me will be checked through prior to being added to this page. Be sure to have it copy ready (i.e. written exactly as you would like it to appear). Any materials not in a copy ready state will not be included.
COMIC BOOK PUBLISHING FUNDRAISER
http://www.indiegogo.com/Morning-People Ed's R Us started online March 2, 2008 and has been producing comics almost every day since. Ed's R Us is a generally optimistic roommate comedy (think of a cross between Friends and Futurama).Morning People, the first Ed's R Us collection collects the strips from the Start to November 1, 2008. After a small miscalculation causes a wayward asteroid destroys their former home, Ed (cuddly mad scientist), Rocco (even cuddlier megalomaniac) and Kanna (I wouldn't cuddle if you know what's good for you) move into an apartment in downtown Raincity. Hilarity ensues. So why should you care? Basically the economy sucks and a the best way to combat it is to do what you love. I LOVE this comic and I want nothing more than to do it as a living, and the way to do that is to print a collection. Unfortunately, I'm a freelance and even though my freelance work pays the bills, It's not quite enough to print the first book. That's where you come in... This campaign is all about pre-selling the book. That's the main focus and for a mere $25 you can get a copy of the book and a sketch on the inside of the cover of whatever character you want. If you really want to help out I have a lot of other donation levels that you can contribute to and win my love!
Frames Film Project - call for participants
I am pleased to announced that the Frames Film Project is now ready for participants for our first cycle, February 27 - June 25! Our call for participants is below.

Future cycles will take place Sept 2011 to April 2012 (8 months) and Sept to Dec 2012 (4 months). The goal of the Frames Film Project is to provide training, support and a voice to multi-barriered, transitional youth, 16-24, with vulnerabilities or experience with mental health or substance misuse. Youth will receive a wide range of skill building, personal development and awareness training, leading to the creation of film pieces expressing their thoughts, experiences and ideas for change. These films will be shared with the community at events that involve a community dialogue component and contribute to the body of knowledge on these important topics. The Frames Film Project is free to join. In addition, transit pass costs are provided as well as snacks and drinks - and each participant will receive an HD camera upon completion of each intake!
